Figure 4

Morphological observation of MCF7 cells treated with the cytotoxic leaf hexane and chloroform extracts under phase-contrast inverted microscope (magnification 200×). Arrows indicate (A) cell shrinkage and (B) membrane blebbing as evidence of apoptosis. Note that the cells were treated with the following concentrations of extracts: a = 19.3 μg/ml, b = 15.30 μg/ml, c = 16.33 μg/ml and d = 18.80 μg/ml. Figures shown were obtained from at least three independent experiments with similar parameter.
