Erratum: Down-Regulation of MiR-30c Promotes the Invasion of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer by Targeting MTA1

<b><i>Background: </i></b>The connection between microRNA expression and lung cancer development has been identified in recent literature. However, the mechanism of microRNA has been poorly elucidated in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). <b><i>Methods and Results: </i></b>Comparing with adjacent tissues (n=75), miR-30c has a lower expression in lung cancer specimens (n=75). The knockdown of miR-30c enhanced the invasion of A549 cells; meanwhile, the overexpression of miR-30c could reverse the effect of the knockdown of miR-30c <i>in vitro</i>. A luciferase assay revealed that miR-30c was directly bound to the 3‘-untranslated regions (3‘-UTR) of MTA1. QRT-PCR and western blot shows MTA1 was up-regulated in mRNA and protein levels. The effect taken on the invasion of NSCLC by overexpression of MTA1 works the same as down-regulated miR-30c. <b><i>Conclusion: </i></b>miR-30c may play a pivotal role in controlling lung cancer invasion through regulating MTA1in NSCLC.
