Abstract:In this study, the apoptotic effect of alpha-bisabolol, a sesquiterpene, against human liver carcinoma cell line HepG2 was investigated. MTT assay showed alpha-bisabolol could effectively induce cytotoxicity in several human cancer cell lines (PC-3, Hela, ECA-109 and HepG2). The results of nuclei morphology examination, DNA fragmentation detection, flow cytometry analysis and cleavage of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase and caspases indicated alpha-bisabolol might induce dose- and time-dependent apoptosis in HepG2 …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
