A colorimetric assay for the assessment of cytotoxicity of yeasts.

Abstract

A colorimetric assay for the quantitation of microbial cytotoxicity has been developed using cells from a monocyte-like human cell line (U937), epithelial cells (Hela), and fibroblast-like cells (Vero) as targets. The fraction of surviving cells was determined by their content of the dye neutral red which is retained only by live cells and can be… (More)
