ASPEeffect on the cell cycle distribution in MDA-MB-231 cell. Treated MDA-MB-231 cells with different concentrations of ASPE for 24 h were stained with PI to analyze the cell cycle distribution of each cell type by flow cytometry. Analysis of cell number % of each cell cycle phase relative to total phases. For example, sub-G1 % is calculated as the percentage of the number of cells in the sub-G1 population relative to the number of total cells. Untreated was indicated as (Cont) and treated cells were indicated as 10 µg/mL (C10), 50 µg/mL (C50) and 100 µg/mL (C100). Each data point represents the mean (±SEM) of three independent experiments. Asterisks indicate significant difference (P < 0.05)
