Fig. 3

FITC-Annexin V/PI and propidium iodide staining of MDA-MB-231 cells treated with bromelain, cisplatin and bromelain/cisplatin combination for 24 and 48 h. The results are expressed as mean ± SD of three separate experiments. The figures shown in a are results from one of the three experiments conducted. The x-axis (Annexin-V/FITC) and y-axis (propidiumiodide) represent the intensity of Annexin-V/FITC and propidium iodide staining in cells, respectively. Shown in b and c are the analyzed results for 24 and 48 h, respectively. The numerical data are presented as mean ± SD (n = 3). *P < 0.05 vs. Control
