چکیده

background programmed cell death (apoptosis) is a physiological process needed to remove unwanted or damaged cells. it has been hypothesized that any failure of programmed cell death leads to the development of neoplasm. identifying new agents which induce apoptosis in tumor cells is of great significance in treatment of neo­plasms. numerous studies suggest that exposure of tumor cells to statins and gamma tocopherol can lead to cell death. objectives the aim of this study was to evaluate the cell death induced by gamma tocopherol and lovastatin in human colorectal carcinoma cell line (ht29) using flow cytometry. material and methods ht29 cells were grown in dmem medium, exposed to different concentrations of lovastatin (10,20,40,100μm ) and gamma tocopherol (25,50,100,200μm) for 48 and 72 hours, individually and in combination (100μm both, 48 h). phenotype of apoptosis was determined by means of flow cytometry. results all concentrations of lovastatin (10, 20, 40, 100 μm) and gamma tocopherol (25, 50, 100, 200 μm) induced an apoptotic response in ht29 cells. in combination, a significant increase in apoptosis phenotype was also demonstrated (p < 0.05). conclusions this study showed that lovastatin when combined with gamma tocopherol, could induce apoptosis in ht29 cells more potently than each agent alone, which uncovers the significance of targeting the proliferative signaling in different points of the pathway.

Quercetin induces cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in CD133+ cancer stem cells of human colorectal HT29 cancer cell line and enhances anticancer effects of doxorubicin

Objective(s):The colorectal cancer stem cells (CSCs) with the CD133+ phenotype are a rare fraction of cancer cells with the ability of self-renewal, unlimited proliferation and resistance to treatment. Quercetin has anticancer effects with the advantage of exhibiting low side effects. Therefore, we evaluated the anticancer effects of quercetin and doxorubicin (Dox) in HT29 cancer cells and its ...

determination of cell death induced by lovastatin on human colon cell line ht29 using the comet assay

background apoptosis or programmed cell death is an essential process for elimination of damaged cells. also, induction of apoptosis is fundamental for treating cancer. screening for agents that induce apoptosis in tumor cells help in the development of novel agents for cancer treatment. numerous studies suggest that the exposure of tumor cells to statins can lead to cell death via two separate...

Induced differentiation in HT29, a human colon adenocarcinoma cell line.

The human colon adenocarcinoma cell line HT29 displays an undifferentiated phenotype under standard growth conditions. When these cells were cultured for 21 days and then treated with forskolin, most of the cells formed brush borders on their apical surfaces. Brush border formation was inhibited by cytochalasin D but not by colchicine. Colchicine, nocodazole and taxol were found to induce diffe...
