Summary of "MiR-let-7a/f-CCR7 signaling is involved in the anti-metastatic effects of an herbal formula comprising Sophorae Flos and Lonicerae Japonicae Flos in melanoma."

Metastasized melanoma is extremely difficult to treat. Activation of C-C chemokine receptor type 7 (CCR7) has been linked to melanoma metastasis. CCR7 can be directly regulated by miR-let-7. We have previously shown that an ethanolic extract of an herbal formula comprising Sophorae Flos and Lonicerae Japonicae Flos (SLE) inhibits melanoma cell migration and invasion.
