Effect of BITC treatment on MCF-7 cell cycle distribution

BITC concentrationPercent cells in phase
Sub-G0-G1G0-G1SG2-M
Control (DMSO)3 ± 0.658 ± 0.619 ± 0.221 ± 1.0
2.5 μmol/L16 ± 0.2*20 ± 1.3*9 ± 0.6*55 ± 1.9*
5 μmol/L12 ± 0.6*19 ± 0.7*8 ± 0.1*61 ± 0.8*
  • NOTE: Results are mean ± SE (n = 3).

  • * P < 0.05, significantly different compared with DMSO-treated control by one-way ANOVA followed by Dunnett's test. Similar results were observed in two independent experiments.
