Figure 4: Apoptosis count of ASK cells after treatment with FA and MeHg. (a) MeHg dose-response with curve following a logarithmic nonlinear curve disposition ( 𝑟 2 = 0 . 9 5 6 4 ); from this curve a concentration which gave 40% apoptosis (approx. 2.5 μM MeHg) was used in assay including fatty acids. (b) Apoptosis count after preincubation of cells with fatty acids. Results are presented as mean ± SD. Statistical differences are revealed by one-way ANOVA and post hoc Dunnett’s test where 𝑛 = 4 . Significant differences compared to 2.5 μM MeHg ( 𝑃 0 . 0 5 ) are indicated by asterix.
