Effect of AzaC and Gal1 on growth and viability of BL36 cells in culture. A. The cells were seeded at 4 × 105/ml and exposed to AzaC at various concentrations for zero to 4 days. Cells were counted every day on a Coulter Counter. B. Cells were cultured in triplicate in the presence or absence of AzaC. Metabolic activity was measured at the indicated times by the MTS assay. Results are given as mean percentage of metabolically active cells (%) in cells grown in the presence of AzaC compared to cells grown in the absence of AzaC. C. Cells grown in the presence of various concentrations of Gal1 were compared to control cells. The data represent the mean of 3 experiments.
