Effects of cytotoxic agents on functional integrity and antioxidant enzymes in clonal beta-cells.


Effects of cytotoxic agents and hydrogen peroxide were examined using pancreatic BRIN-BD11 cells and the parental insulinoma RINm5F cell line. Cell viability was determined using the MTT colorimetric assay and the TUNEL assay was used to assess apoptosis and acridine orange assay was used to determine levels of apoptosis versus necrosis. RT-PCR studies were… (More)
