Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death throughout the world. We aimed to investigate the role of a novel microRNA-876-5p and its potential molecular target bone morphogenetic protein 4 (BMP-4), in the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of lung cancer. Expressions of microRNA-876-5p and its potential target BMP-4 were analysed in lung cancer cells and patient tissues. Luciferase activity assay was conducted to verify direct targeting of microRNA- 876-5p to the 3'-UTR of BMP-4 mRNA. Migration, invasion capacities of lung cancer cells expressing microRNA-876-5p were analysed, and characteristics of lung cancer EMT protein markers were also evaluated. A xenograft tumour mouse model was established to address the roles of microRNA-876-5p and BMP-4 in lung cancer EMT
