Dehydroabietic Acid Derivative QC2 Induces Oncosis in Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells

Figure 3

QC2 induced destruction of cytomembrane and ultrastructural changes in SMMC-7721 cells. (a) LDH level time-dependently increased in the supernatants of QC2-treated cells. (b) PI uptake of SMMC-7721 cells accumulated along with increase of QC2 concentration. (c) Electron micrographs of QC2-treated SMMC-7721 cells showed ultrastructure changes.
