Laryngeal cancer has become the focus of research because of its high incidence rate and mortality rate. However, the research on miR-194-5p in laryngeal cancer is quite rare. The purpose of this study is to explore the effect of miR-194-5p on the proliferation and invasion of laryngeal cancer cells in order to find an effective way to treat laryngeal cancer. The results showed that miR-194-5p could activate the mTOR signaling pathway by regulating the expression of Smurf1, which had an effect on laryngeal cancer cells. The results showed that the absorbance of the miR-194-5p group was 0.38 lower than that of the NC group, which indicated that up-regulation of mir-194-5p could weaken the proliferation of laryngeal cancer cells. In addition, the average number of laryngeal cancer cells in NC and the miR-194-5p groups was 125.2 and 53.8, respectively, which indicated that miR-194-5p could reduce the number of laryngeal cancer cells passing through the basement membrane and their invasion ability.
