Figure 1: Acetaldehyde treatment impairs neuronal viability and mitochondrial function. Rat cerebellar neuron cultures were treated with 0.045–23.0 mM acetaldehyde for 48 hours. (a) Viability was measured using the Crystal violet assay, and (b) mitochondrial function was measured with the MTT assay. Graphs depict the mean ± S.E.M. of results from 16 replicate 96-well cultures.
