Figure : 1 A. Cytotoxic effects of Kigelia pinnata stem bark (total methanolic extract (TME) and chloroform fractions CF3 and CF7) against SKW-3 cells after 72 h treatment. Each data point represents the arithmetic mean ± sd of eight separate experiments. B. DNA-laddering of the genomic DNA extracted from SKW-37 cells after exposure to Kigelia pinnata stem bark TME as assessed by 0.8% agarose gel electrophoresis, ethidium bromide staining and UV-transillumination. (1) DNA fragmentation marker; (2) untreated control; (3) Kigelia pinnata TME 300 μg/ml; (4) Kigelia pinnata TME 150 μg/ml; (5) Kigelia pinnata TME 75 μg/ml; (6) vincristine 0.5 μg/ml; (7) vincristine 1 μg/ml.
