Hypothesis: EUG promotes a burst in ROS production causing cell-cycle perturbations, mitochondria toxicity and clastogenesis triggering apoptosis in melanoma breast- and cervix-cancer cells in vitro.
Results: The results obtained herein pointed out that EUG promotes, increasing ROS production leading to abrogation of G2/M of phase of cell-cycle, and consecutively, clastogenesis in vitro.
