Table 1 Apoptotic body indices in pSiAR-EGFP and pSiCon-EGFP transfected LNCaP cells

From: Androgen receptor signaling is required for androgen-sensitive human prostate cancer cell proliferation and survival

  # of apoptotic bodies (per 1,000)a Transfection efficiency (%) Apoptotic body indexc
  Mean + S.D. Mean + S.D. Mean + S.D.
pSiAR-EGFP 52.89 ± 22.12b 17.0 ± 3.45 296.2 ± 78.2b
pSiCon-EGFP 6.53 ± 2.85 22.9 ± 2.84 29.2 ± 15.4
  1. a The number of apoptotic bodies were was determined by counting 1,000 cells from each of 3 independent hematoxylin stained slides.
  2. b Significant difference between pSiAR-EGFP and pSiCon-EGFP transfected cells (p < 0.05).
  3. c Apoptotic body indices were calculated after normalizing to transfection efficiency.
