In Situ Morphological Assessment of Apoptosis Induced by Phaleria Macrocarpa (Boerl.) Fruit Ethyl Acetate Fraction (Pmeaf) in Mda-mb-231 Cells by Microscopy Observation
Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy (2017)
Institution: Universiti Sains Malaysia, Malaysia
Cell Line: MDA-MB-231, Vero (Human mammary carcinoma cell lines and green monkey kidney epithelial cells (non-cancerous cells))
Research Area: Apoptosis
Conclusions: The purpose of the study was to determine the cytotoxic effect of P. macrocarpa fruit ethyl acetate fraction (PMEAF) by using various conventional and modern microscopy techniques. The results indicate that PMEAF is a potential anticancer agent and a candidate for developing more potent anticancer drugs.
