Abstract


The methanolic extract of Gordonia obtusa (Theaceae) was evaluated for its effects on growth in two malignant cell lines including a Human Lung cancer cell lines (A549) and Colon cancer cell lines (HT-29) using MTT assay. In these cell lines studied, the extract decreased cell viability, inhibited cell proliferation, and induced cell death in a dose dependent manner. The ethanolic extract of G. obtusa showed good cytotoxicity and their IC50 values were found to be 35.12g/mL and 6.65 g/mL respectively. It could be a reliable source of potent pharmacophore for treatment of disease like cancer.
