Abstract

The ethanol extract of Dunaliella salina (EDS) on proliferation and apoptosis in the A549 human lung cancer cell line and their associated protein expressions were investigated. After 24 and 48 h treatment, MTT assay showed that 25 μg/ml of EDS significantly reduced A549 cell proliferation by 25.2% (p
