Figure 1: MEPT-induced inhibition of proliferation and changes in cell morphology. MDA-MB-231 cells were treated with 0, 12.5, 25, 50, or 100 μg/mL of MEPT for 24 h or 48 h and proliferation rates were analyzed using an 3,4,5-dimethyl N-methylthiazol-2-yl-2, 5-d-phenyl tetrazolium bromide assay. Results are presented as the means ± standards deviation of three independent experiments (*P < 0.05; **P < 0.01; ***P < 0.001) (A). MEPT caused a change in cell morphology consistent with apoptosis in MDA-MB-231 cells (original magnification, ×200). Cells were treated with (a) 0 μg/mL, (b) 25 μg/mL, (c) 50 μg/mL, or (d) 100 μg/mL of MEPT for 24 h or (e) 30 nM of paclitaxel for 24 h (B)
