Parthenium hysterophorus: A Probable Source of Anticancer, Antioxidant and Anti-HIV Agents
Cell cycle analysis of P. hysterophorus leaf ET extract treated HL-60 cells. (a) Untreated cells (control), (b) treated cells, and (c) Positive control. HL-60 cells (2 × 106 cells/mL/well) were exposed to the indicated concentrations of ethanol (ET) extract and camptothecin for 24 h and stained with propidium iodide to determine DNA fluorescence and cell cycle phase distribution as described in materials and methods section. Fraction of cells for sub-G1 population analyzed from FL-2 versus cell counts is shown. Data are representative of one of three similar experiments.
(a) Untreated cells
(b) ET 100 μg/mL
(c) Camptothecin 5 μM
