Abstract

This study aims to elucidate the effects of chrysin on human ER-negative breast cancer cell line, MDA-MB-231. The study demonstrated that treatment of MDA-MB-231 cells with 20 µM chysin for 48 h significantly inhibited the growth of MDA-MB-231 cells and induced cytoplasmic lipid accumulation in the cells, but that the observed of cell death was not caused by apoptosis. The expression of PPARalpha mRNA in chrysin-treated MDA-MB-231 cells was significantly increased, which was likely associated to the proliferation of the cells post chrysin treatment.
Keywords: chrysin; cell growth inhibition; lipid accumulation; apoptosis; PPAR mRNA expression; ER-negative breast cancer chrysin; cell growth inhibition; lipid accumulation; apoptosis; PPAR mRNA expression; ER-negative breast cancer
