Carotenoid, a natural functional pigment, is known to have anti-carcinogenic activity. To verify the anti-cancer effects of rhodoxanthin which is a kind of carotenoids, we investigated the effects of rhodoxanthin from Potamogeton crispus L. on the proliferation rate, cell cycle distribution, apoptosis and the change in mitochondrial membrane potential in Hela cell line. The effects of rhodoxanthin were also tested on the concentration of Ca(2+) in cells. Rhodoxanthin inhibited cell… CONTINUE READING
