Role of Protein kinase B (AKT)/P70/FOXO3 signaling pathway in effect of miR-1290 on myotube atrophy. a Giemsa staining was performed to calculate myotube diameters for TNF-α + miR-NC or TNF-α + miR-NC + GDC0068, TNF-α + miR-1290 or TNF-α + miR-1290 + GDC0068 treatments. b Cell diameters of five groups were measured. cf Western blot analysis and quantification of phosphorylated and all forms of AKT and P70 of C1C12 myotubes for TNF-α + miR-NC or TNF-α + miR-NC + GDC0068, TNF-α + miR-1290 or TNF-α + miR-1290 + GDC0068 treatments. Western blot was performed to analyze the expression of MuRF1 and atrogin-1 in TNF-α + miR-NC or TNF-α + miR-NC + GDC0068, TNF-α + miR-1290 or TNF-α + miR-1290 + GDC0068 groups. After treatment with miR-1290/miR-NC or with GDC-0068, FoxO3 expression levels in cytoplasm and nucleus of C2C12 myotubes were examined by western blot. GAPDH and Lamin B1 are cytoplasmic and nuclear protein loading controls, respectively. The statistical difference among miR-1290 transfection group and inhibitor group were considered significant at the levels of *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, or ***P < 0.001
