Tissue-engineering-based three-dimensional (3D) models offer several advantages over conventional two-dimensional (2D) cultures and can mimic tissues in vivo. Although studies have 3D scaffolds. The changes in the expression of several known microRNAs were similar to the changes reported in highly invasive cancers and their profiles highly correlated with 3D culture better mimics the tissue in vivo with novel insights into the roles of miRNAs in modulating metastatic progression
