MTT Assay for Cytotoxicity Assessment in Oryza sativa Root Tissue
Authors:  Snehalata Majumdar, Titir Guha and Rita Kundu, date: 11/20/2017, view: 7007, Q&A: 0
Cytotoxicity of different compounds are commonly evaluated by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay. This assay is mainly used to study cell viability in cell lines (Carmichael et al., 1987). In this ...
