2.  MicroRNA-31 functions as a tumor suppressor by regulating cell cycle and epithelial-mesenchymal transition regulatory proteins in liver cancer 
Oncotarget  2015;6(10):8089-8102.
MicroRNA-31 (miR-31) is among the most frequently altered microRNAs in human cancers and altered expression of miR-31 has been detected in a large variety of tumor types, but the functional role of miR-31 still hold both tumor suppressive and oncogenic roles in different tumor types. MiR-31 expression was down-regulated in a large cohort of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients, and low expression of miR-31 was significantly associated with poor prognosis of HCC patients. Ectopic expression of miR-31 mimics suppressed HCC cell growth by transcriptional deregulation of cell cycle proteins. Additional study evidenced miR-31 directly to suppress HDAC2 and CDK2 expression by inhibiting mRNA translation in HCC cells. We also found that ectopic expression of miR-31 mimics reduced metastatic potential of HCC cells by selectively regulating epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) regulatory proteins such as N-cadherin, E-cadherin, vimentin and fibronectin. HCC tissues derived from chemical-induced rat liver cancer models validated that miR-31 expression is significantly down-regulated, and that those cell cycle- and EMT-regulatory proteins are deregulated in rat liver cancer. Overall, we suggest that miR-31 functions as a tumor suppressor by selectively regulating cell cycle and EMT regulatory proteins in human hepatocarcinogenesis providing a novel target for the molecular treatment of liver malignancies.

3.  (E)-N-(3,3-Diphenyl­allyl­idene)-3-nitro­aniline 
In the title compound, C21H16N2O2, the 3-nitro­phenyl and two phenyl rings are twisted from the mean plane of the enimino fragment by 44.4 (1), 37.2 (1) and 74.1 (1)°, respectively. The crystal packing exhibits no classical inter­molecular contacts.

4.  (E)-N-(3,3-Diphenyl­allyl­idene)-4-nitro­aniline 
In the title compound, C21H16N2O2, the dihedral angles between the mean planes of the 4-nitro­phenyl ring and the two phenyl rings are 57.3 (5) and 16.8 (6)°. The imine group displays a C—C—N—C torsion angle of −24.9 (3)°.
