Zinc suppresses stem cell properties of lung cancer cells through protein kinase C-mediated β-catenin degradation.


Highly tumorigenic cancer stem cells (CSCs) residing in most cancers are responsible for cancer progression and treatment failure. Zinc is an element regulator of several cell functions; however, its role in regulation of stem cell program in lung cancer has not been demonstrated. The present study reveals for the first time that zinc can suppress stem cell… (More)
