Short communication Verapamil-induced autophagy-like process in colon adenocarcinoma COLO 205 cells; the ultrastructural studies


Background: Verapamil (Ver) is a well known, worldwide used drug to correct cardiac arrhythmias. The main Ver target is the L-type calcium channel. Modulation of calcium homeostasis vaulted Ver into use in medical applications. Methods: To examine COLO 205 cells morphology after Ver treatment, an electron microscopy technique was used. Results: This study… (More)
