These miRs in the advanced stage may also migrate to osteoclast where they may produce a beneficial effect but its mechanism of action is still unclear to date.10,16 Evidence indicates that miR-16 can modulate the cell cycle, inhibit cell proliferation, promote cell apoptosis and suppress tumorigenicity both in vivo and in vitro.

More recently, TSPO has been shown to be part of the mitochondria-to-nucleus signaling pathway that modulates nuclear gene expression and TSPO levels have been directly correlated with increased tumorigenicity and/or malignancy, probably as a mechanism to promote apoptosis and reduce tumorigenicity, thereby suggesting that benign tumors do not have increased TSPO levels [6, 24-26].
Oncogenic-driven cancer cells generate increased ROS as by-products of their metabolism to maintain tumorigenicity [82].
