Studying the anticancer activity, the standard drug (doxorubicin) was used against Hela cell lines that showed 73% inhibition at 30 ug/ml concentration.
To get at the heart of the matter, a team of scientists from Beijing and Taipei wanted to get a new hint at cancer vulnerability from a mutational perspective by probing the most famous cultured cancer cells, HeLa cells.
Compared with normal cervical epithelial cells, MMP-2 and MMP-9 expression was aberrantly increased in SiHa and HeLa cells, and significantly decreased after GPNMB siRNA treatment (Figure 3A).
umbrosum extract have determined that the plant extract has apoptotic effects on HeLa cells. In this report, it was shown that 0.1,0.5, and 1 mg/mL concentrations of the plant extract had increased compared to the control group at 24 hours (p<0.01) (22).
HeLa cells were plated on coverslips and treated with either the control or experimental group for 0-72 h.
Cytotoxicity Assessment: The biocompatibility of L as a receptor was tested by analyzing the viability on HeLa cells. Each type of cells was treated with L at concentrations ranging from 10 [micro]M to 500 [micro]M for 24 hours, and the cell viability was quantified using a trypan blue exclusion assay.
HeLa cells have acted as a model of cell interaction and are used in research related to the treatment of cancer, Parkinson's, hemophilia and sexually transmitted diseases.
One book I have often required students to read is Rebecca Skloot's The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, which addresses the origin of HeLa cells, the oldest continuous cell line used for cancer research.
