Cytotoxicity of Roots Methanolic Extractof Maytenus senegalensis.
The aim of this study was to evaluate toxicity of a methanolic root fraction of Maytenus senegalensis, a medicinal plant commonly used in senegalese pharmacopoeia. Toxicological tests were conducted by In vitro assay. Thus, cell viability was performed by MTT, Neutral Red and LDH activity assays on Caco-2 and HepG2 cell lines and IC50 were determined. Apoptotic activity was evaluated by electrophoretic migration of the DNA extract to determine a potential fragmentation. Results showed that the extract was cytotoxic ones whatever the cell type used, at IC50 < 40 ?g/mL for MTT and LDH. With Neutral Red, IC50 was between 60-80 ?g/mL DNA fragmentation has also been observed, indicating the involvement of apoptosis in the cell death mechanism. The date will be supplemented by an in vivo evaluation for a better appreciation of the safety of use of M. senegalensis.
