Tanshinone IIA (TSN) is a monomer extracted from the Chinese herb Danshen. In this study, we examined the effect of Tanshinone IIA on adriamycin (ADR)-induced apoptosis in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes and underlying molecular mechanisms. Primary cultured cardiomyocytes were treated with 1 micromol/L of adriamycin for 24 h with or without pretreatment with Tanshinone IIA (0.5-2 micromol/L) for 2 h. 3-(4,5-dimethyl thiazol-2yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay, Hoechst staining, and… CONTINUE READING
