Effect of miR overexpression on 3D metastatic melanoma cell invasion. a MiR-155, miR-199a-3p and miR-199a-5p were individually transfected, at the indicated concentration, in WM-266-4 GFP cells 48 h before spheroid formation. Images shown are representative of one spheroid per condition. The mean invasion index and SEM of two independent experiments are shown. b Top panel: main experimental steps for 5azadC treatments and anti-miR-199a-3p transfection before performing the 3D-invasion assay. Representative images of spheroids for each condition and invasion index quantification are presented. The mean index for 12 spheroids and SEM are shown. *P value < 0.05, **P value < 0.01, ***P value < 0.001, ND not determined, Ctl control and NT not treated
