Table 2 Distribution of the cell cycle in BEAS-2B cells 24 hours after treatment

From: Genotoxicity of multi-walled carbon nanotubes at occupationally relevant doses

Treatment % G1 % S % G2
24 hour PBS 43.25 ± 5.6 32.11 ± 6.5 18.30 ± 5.3
24 hour As 35.6 ± 6.9 26.38 ± 7.9 32.10 ± 6.7*
24 hour MWCNT 39.8 ± 4.0 40.1 ± 5.6* 15.90 ± 3.3
  1. The table demonstrates the mean of percent of cells in G1, S and G2 phase of the cell division 24 hours following treatment with media, 5 μM arsenic or to 24 μg/cm2 MWCNT. The data is based on replicates of 6 that were repeated in 9 independent experiments.
  2. *: p <0.05 of the treated cells compared to diluent control exposed cultures.
