Figure 3

Agarose gel (1,5%) profile of DNA from MCF-7 cells treated with acetone extract of S. birrea. Effect of different concentrations of acetone extract (EA) after 24 h incubation. Lane 1: molecular weight marker, lane 2: untreated MCF-7 cells, note that cells were unaffected, lane 3: treated cells with IC50 conc. DNA concentration diminishes with a visible faint band. Lane 4: treated cells with IC50  ×  2 conc, faint band completely disappears; in subsequent lanes. Lane 5: treated cells with IC50  ×  4 conc. Lane 6: treated cells with IC50  ×  8 concentration.
