  • PURPOSE To investigate the anticancer properties implicated in a natural triterpenoid (pristimerin)-induced apoptosis and inhibited proliferation in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) HepG2 cell line. METHODS The cytotoxic activity of pristimerin in HepG2 cells was determined by MTT assay. Apoptotic morphology was observed by fluorescence microscope with Hoechst 33258 staining and percent apoptosis was measured by annexin V/PI double staining. DiOC6 for mitochondrial potential (ΔΨm) and… CONTINUE READING
