Carotenoids induce apoptosis in the T-lymphoblast cell line Jurkat E6.1.

Abstract

Epidemiologically, a high-carotenoid intake via a fruit- and vegetable-rich diet is associated with a decreased risk of various forms of cancer. The mechanisms by which carotenoids exert this protective effect are controversial. In this study, we examined the potency of a range of carotenoids commonly found in human plasma to induce apoptosis in Jurkat E6.1… (More)
