Table 3 Effects of hazel and yew medium extracts on mitotic index and metaphase/anaphase transition

From: In vitro cell cultures obtained from different explants of Corylus avellanaproduce Taxol and taxanes

  Mitotic index Anaphases/metaphases no./no. p*
Control 0.015 ± 0.01 0.189 ± 0.10 -
Taxol (10 nM) 0.040 ± 0.02 0.028 ± 0.02 <0.001
Hazel extract 0.065 ± 0.02 0.007 ± 0.01 <0.001
Yew extract 0.017 ± 0.01 0.071 ± 0.01 <0.01
  1. Data are the mean ± SD of at least 3 experiments. For each experiment at least 1000 interphase nuclei and 50 mitosis were counted.
  2. *p value estimates of significance by Fisher's exact test on anaphase/metaphase ratio.
