Abstract:Our previous works showed that extracts and fractions from Polymnia sonchifolia had presented an inhibitory activity on growth and aflatoxin production by Aspergillus flavus in non-cytotoxic concentrations. In this work, report results on the in vitro cytotoxicity of subfractions and of a mixture of sesquiterpenes lactones from Polymnia sonchifolia on Vero cells. The cytotoxicity was assayed through crystal violet staining (CVS) method and the 50% inhibitory concentration for cell growth (IC50) was calculated.… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research 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 students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
