From: Expression of a Cu,Zn superoxide dismutase typical for familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis increases the vulnerability of neuroblastoma cells to infectious injury

Figure 1

Toxicity of pneumolysin for Wt-SOD1 and G93A-SOD1 neuroblastoma cells. Cell viability measured by the WST-1 test after 3 h of incubation with pneumolysin (PLY) at a concentration of 0.5 μg/ml. Values are given in % of mitochondrial metabolic activity of unstimulated control cells ± standard deviation (SD). G93A-SOD1 mutant SH-SY5Y cells were more vulnerable to the action of PLY than Wt-SOD1 SH-SY5Y cells (p < 0.0001).
