A variety of anticancer activities have been established for fucoidan from brown algae, whereas whether cancer stem cells (CSCs) are inhibited by sulfated polysaccharides is unexplored. In this study, fucoidan extracted from Sargassum hemiphyllum was showed heat stable and might tolerate 140 C treatment. Fucoidan did not exhibit cytotoxicity in 5637 and T24 bladder cancer cells. After fucoidan treatment, the stress fibers were aggregated into thick and abundant underneath the plasma membrane and getting around the cells, and the structure of F -actin showed a remarkable change in the filopodial protrusion in T24 and 5637 cells. Using culture inserts, transwell assays and time lapse recordings showed that fucoidan inhibited cell migration. In the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), fucoidan downregulated the expression of vimentin, a mesenchymal marker, and upregulated the expression of E-cadherin, an epithelial marker. Additionally, the transcription levels of Snail, Slug, Twist1, Twist2, MMP2 and MMP9 were significantly decreased by fucoidan, indicating EMT suppression. CSCs are implicated in tumor initiation, metastatic spread, drug resistance and tumor recurrence. Our results showed that fucoidan inhibited stemness gene expression and sphere formation in bladder CSCs. For the first time, our findings demonstrated that fucoidan inhibits CSC formation and provides evidence as potential anti-cancer therapy.
