In this study, the antioxidant and cytotoxic activities of resin obtained from the Cilician Fir plant were evaluated. According to data, the in vitro antioxidant activity of the resin has changed depending on the radical scavenging activity method. This resin has antioxidant activity according to 2,2′-Azino-bis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulphonic acid) (ABTS) radical scavenging assay. The in vitro cytotoxic activity of the resin was investigated against a panel of human cancer cells (MDA-MB-231, Hep G2, PC-3, U-87, MCF-7, HT-29) with the MTT (3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide) assay for 48 h. Normal human lung fibroblast cells (WI-38) were used as healthy cells. The results indicated that the in vitro cytotoxic activity of the resin depends on the cell line type and concentration of the resin. According to the IC50 values, the resin has the most cytotoxic activity on endometrial adenocarcinoma cancer cells (IC50=8.94 ± 0.03 µg mL-1) compared to other cancer cells. The results also indicated that Ishikawa endometrial adenocarcinoma cells, which have Selectivity Index (SI) value >2, have the most sensitivity against the resin. This study provides the first evidence that the resin inhibits the different cancer cells' growth.
Bu çalışmada, Toros Göknarı bitkisinden elde edilen reçinenin antioksidan ve sitotoksik aktivite değerleri değerlendirilmiştir. Verilere göre, reçinenin in vitro antioksidan aktivitesi, radikal süpürücü aktivite yöntemine bağlı olarak değişmiştir. Bu reçine, 2,2′-Azino-bis- (3-etilbenzotiazolin-6-sülfonik asit) (ABTS) radikal süpürme testine göre antioksidan aktiviteye sahiptir. Reçinenin in vitro sitotoksik aktivitesi, bir dizi insan kanser hücresine (MDA-MB-231, Hep G2, PC-3, U-87, MCF-7, HT-29) karşı MTT (3- (4,5-dimetiltiyazol-2-il) -2,5-difeniltetrazolium bromid) analizi ile 48 saat boyunca araştırıldı. Sağlıklı hücreler olarak normal insan akciğer fibroblast hücreleri (WI-38) kullanıldı. Sonuçlar, reçinenin in vitro sitotoksik aktivitesinin hücre hattı tipine ve numunenin konsantrasyonuna bağlı olduğunu göstermiştir. IC50 değerlerine göre, reçine diğer kanser hücrelerine kıyasla endometriyal adenokarsinom kanser hücreleri üzerinde en fazla sitotoksik aktiviteye sahiptir (IC50 = 8.94 ± 0.03 µg mL-1). Sonuçlar ayrıca seçicilik indeks (SI) değeri> 2 olan Ishikawa endometriyal adenokarsinom hücrelerinin reçineye karşı en yüksek hassasiyete sahip olduğunu göstermiştir. Bu çalışma, reçinenin farklı kanser hücrelerinin büyümesini engellediğine dair ilk kanıtları sunmaktadır.
