Cytotoxicity against Jurkat cell

Exploratory Research

Measured value Inhibition (%)
Animal species Human
Indication of the result The rate of decrease (%) in viable cell number against the control condition without test drug treatment is shown. Positive values indicate cytotoxic effect.
Target diseases of assay Cancer
Assay level Cell-based
Protocol of assay 1) Jurkat cells were incubated with or without test drug for 24 h at a concentration of 5x10^4 cells/well. 2) WST8 reagent was added to each well, and the cells were further incubated for 3 h. 3) Cell viability was quantified by measuring light absorbance at 490 nm.
