1. MTT is taken into the cell through endocytosis and is reduced and accumulated in a population of acidic vesicles. Reduced MTT formazan is exocytosed to form needle-like formazan crystals at the cell surface. Mitochondria are unlikely to play a significant role in cellular MTT reduction. 2. Amyloid fibrils inhibit cellular MTT reduction indirectly by(More)
Dictamnine (Dic) has the ability to exert cytotoxicity in human cervix, colon, and oral carcinoma cells and dihydroartemisinin (DHA) also has potent anticancer activity on various tumour cell lines. This report explores the molecular mechanisms by which Dic treatment and combination treatment with DHA and Dic cause apoptosis in human lung adenocarcinoma(More)
Dictamnine (Dic), a natural alkaloid, was isolated from the root of Dictamnus dasycarpus Turcz, and has been reported to possess anti-platelet aggregation, fungal activity and vascular-relaxing effects (Huang et al., 2005; Huang et al., 2007; Guo et al., 2008). Recently, it was reported that Dic could induce cytotoxicity in human cervix, colon, and oral(More)
