Overexpression of TRIM3 suppressed the growth and metastasis of HepG2 and Bel-7402 cells in vivo. HepG2 or Bel-7402 cells infected with LV-NC and LV-TRIM3 were injected into nude mice. Tumor volumes were measured every 3 days. At the end of the experiment, the mice were killed, and the tumors were harvested for the volume and weight measurement. a Tumor growth rates are reduced in mice injected with TRIM3-overexpressing cells. b Photographs of dissected tumors from nude mice. Final tumor sizes are smaller in mice injected with TRIM3-overexpressing cells than those in mice injected with LV-NC-infecting cells. c The final tumor weights are reduced in mice injected with TRIM3-overexpressing cells. d TRIM3 protein expression is higher in tumors in mice injected with TRIM3-overexpressing cells than in those in mice injected with LV-NC-infecting cells. Data are presented as mean ± SD. P values were calculated using Student’s t test. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, and ***P < 0.001, versus cells infected with LV-NC. e Overexpression of TRIM3 inhibited lung metastasis in vivo. Representative histological images of lung sections with hematoxylin and eosin (HE) staining are shown. Black frame indicates the metastatic nodule
