When compared with SW620 cells, CTS and DTS induced much more expression of microtubule-associated protein light chain 3 (LC3) B-II, a protein present on the autophagosome membrane, in SW620 Ad300 cells, suggesting that the autophagic signaling pathways were more activated in the drug-resistant cells after tanshinone treatments (Fig.
