Original articleCytotoxic effect of ferrimagnetic glass-ceramic nanocomposites on bone osteosarcoma cells
AbstractThis work pointed out the anti-cancer effect of ferrimagnetic glass ceramic nanocomposites (CaO-ZnO-Fe2O3-SiO2), which contain high amount of magnetite (∼60%), crystallite size <100 nm, and different nucleating agents on bone cancer Saos-2 cells. The cell viability was inhibited by FH and FW to <50% and <25%, respectively, with/without magnetism, and both also reduced mitochondrial transmembrane potential (ΔYm), with/without magnetism (no influence of magnetism). Histone deacetylase (HDAC) activity was inhibited by FH, FW, and FHPNT, with/without magnetism. FHP3/magnetism resulted in HDAC inhibition.In absence of magnetism, FH and FW increased both necrotic and apoptotic cell death, while FW/magnetism induced late apoptosis. DNA fragmentation was increased by FH- and FW-treatment, with/without magnetism. At the same time, FW and FH/magnetism can efficiently induce the intrinsic apoptotic pathway in Saos-2 cells, whereas FW with/without magnetism and FH/ Read more...
