Tetrazolium violet induces G0/G1 arrest and apoptosis in brain tumor cells


Tetrazolium violet (TV), a potent anticancer agent, has been shown to induce cell growth-inhibition in tumor cells. However, the related mechanism has not been revealed yet. In this report we assessed the influence of TV on cell growth and cell cycle in brain tumor cells. Treatment of C6 tumor cells with TV (5–15 μM for 24–72 h) resulted in a growth… (More)
