Wnt/beta-catenin signaling regulates cancer stem cells in lung cancer A549 cells.
Wnt/beta-catenin signaling plays an important role not only in cancer, but also in cancer stem cells. In this study, we found that beta-catenin and OCT-4 was highly expressed in cisplatin (DDP)Expand

Influence of Rhizobium meliloti on phytoremediation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons by alfalfa in an aged contaminated soil.
Microbe-assisted phytoremediation is emerging as one of the most effective means by which plants and their associated rhizosphere microbes degrade organic contaminants in soils. A pot study wasExpand

Effect of bioaugmentation by Paracoccus sp. strain HPD-2 on the soil microbial community and removal of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from an aged contaminated soil.
A microcosm study was conducted to test the bioremediation potential of Paracoccus sp. strain HPD-2 on an aged PAH-contaminated soil. Bioaugmented microcosms showed a 23.2% decrease in soil total PAHExpand
