    Abstract

    Fucoidan from Sargassum hemiphyllum Inhibits the Stemness of Cancer Stem Cells and Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transitions in Bladder Cancer Cells

    Fucoidan downregulated the expression of vimentin, a mesenchymal marker, upregulated the expression of E-cadherin, an epithelial marker, and decreased the formation of filopodia and lamellipodia.
