Neurons were treated with 1 uM Etoposide to induce DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs), followed by gH2ax staining to detect DSBs.
Used for killing assay for in vitro cell culture. Cells were cultured for 24 hours before the addition of the compound into the media at low micromolar concentrations (indicated by the arrow).

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
