Fig. 5

Effect of bromelain, cisplatin and bromelain/cisplatin combination after 48 h treatment duration on mitochondrial membrane potential in MDA-MB-231 cells as measured by JC-1 staining. The figures shown in a are the results from one of the three experiments conducted. Locations of R1 region (cells population with normal mitochondrial potential) and R2 region (cells population with reduced mitochondrial potential) are marked for each plot. Shown in b are the percentages of cells positive for JC-1 monomers for the treated and untreated MDA-MB-231 cells. The numerical data are presented as mean ± SD (n = 3). *P < 0.05 vs. Control
