Figure 1. Viability assay of β TC-6 cells exposed to oxidant and PE. A and B Fig. show percentages of viable cells exposed to a different concentration of H2O2 y t-BOOH. C show percentages of viability cells incubate for 0 (control), 4, 8, 16 and 24 hours with H2O2 150 µM and t-BOOH 100 µM (D). E represents a cytotoxicity assay of β TC-6 cells exposed to a control Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle Medium high glucose (DMEM-H medium), vehicle (methanol/water) and different concentration of PE. Result are presented as means ± SD (n=3). One way ANOVA, p < 0,001, Dunnett’s post hoc test ***p < 0.001.
