The suspension cells were maintained in RPMI 1640 Glutamax-1 medium containing 3. M L-glutamine and 25 mM HEPES and supplemented with 1. This medium is referred to as complete medium (CM10). Buy Kratom Cod Manawa upon resuscitation (as described in chapter 2 section 2.

As described in section 5. ROS generated from mitochondria of SH-SY5Y cells was measured by fluorescence in which the intensity of fluorescent product DCFH is proportional to the levels of intracellular ROS generated. Results of the preliminary assay as shown in fig. H202 significantly released ROS as soon as it was added to the cells (at the 30 minute time interval) and was consistently higher
than other group treatments. The incubation of anti-oxidant NAC 30 minutes prior to adding H202 appears to reduce the ROS production. Interestingly both high doses of MSE and MIT appeared similar to control groups and indicate that there was no ROS generation in this cell line. Another important microscopic observation was made after the final readings at the 1 hr time point which showed that all cells in the Control group appeared rounded and floating in the middle of the well.
A fluorescence-based method to measure ROS Buy Kratom Cod Manawa generation in live cells was a Buy Kratom Cod Manawa modification of the procedure described by Esposti and McLennan (1998). This is to ensure that the free-radical quencher albumin present in the serum used as a media supplement is removed as it interferes with the quantitative analysis of ROS (Esposti 2002). M) under subdued lighting. Anti-oxidant N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) (5mM) was also added to appropriate wells.

Based on these findings it was postulated that the mechanism of cell death of SH-SY5Y cells upon MSE treatment may not follow the common intrinsic pathway which requires the activation of tumour suppressor protein p53. Therefore the possible involvement of the caspase enzymes such as upstream caspases 8 and 9 which are involved in both intrinsic and extrinsic pathways and also the executioner caspases 3 and 7 were investigated. MSE mediated
cell death was found to not involve any of the caspase cascades examined. Thus this finding is consistent with the previous data which indicates that the apoptotic-like cell death seen for MSE treated SH-SY5Y cells is p53independent and caspase independent.

Thus in this part of this thesis several investigations were attempted to provide possible mechanism of the nature and mode of cell death seen with a selected panel of human cell lines. The cytological examination using three different cell lines (SH-SY5Y HEK 293 and MCL-5 cells) was the first investigation. As anticipated toxicity effects seen at high doses suggested apoptotic morphology with evidence of chromatin condensation which was
predominantly seen in SH-SY5Y cells. Nuclear alterations are key in many descriptions of apoptosis. The severity of MSE insult in the SH-SY5Y cell line was obvious at the highest dose tested as there were very few cells present on the slide and all of them showed apoptotic morphology.
MIT treatment of SH-SY5Y cells as shown in figure 2. MSE (figure 2. MIT-like compound (based on the analysis described in section 2.
The Arochlor 1254-induced rat liver S9 was a kind gift from Dr. Costas Ionnides of the University of Surrey U. The MLA assay protocols were obtained from the Genetic Toxicology Department of GlaxoSmithKline Company (Ware U.
This implies that the presence of S9 at these concentrations increase the metabolic activation of MSE to toxic derivatives which killed the majority of the cells. However as shown by MSE treated groups in the absence of S9 MSE even at highest dose administered did not show any toxic effects. MSE were omitted from plating as their RSG value were nearly micro powdered indonesian kratom dosage similar to the negative control groups.
For HEK 293 cells the nature of cell death was more necrotic than apoptotic as morphologically the cell membrane integrity was compromised leaving a reduced stained intensity and indicating lysis of cell membrane and subsequent lost of cell content. Although Rapi-Diff staining is often kratom thai pills used for cell morphology in this case the quality of staining was not as good as Wright-Giemsa staining however it still provided an indication of Buy Kratom Cod Manawa the different modes of cell death of MCL-5 cells. MSE with control and lower dose groups showed there was a clear necrotic appearance with swelling of cells lysis of Buy Kratom Cod Manawa cell membrane and lost of cell content. All these morphological observations suggested that the mode of cell death was cell type dependant with apoptosis pronounced in SH-SY5Y cells and necrosis for HEK 293 and MCL-5 cells. MSE in three different cell lines HEK 293 Buy Kratom Cod Manawa SH-SY5Y mitragyna speciosa red dawn and MCL-5 cells accompanied the death of these cells line.
