Abstract :

Being the most indigenious economic plants of Anatolia, Achillea genus is widespread all over the world and in literature its species have been investigated to possess several biological activities including cytotoxicty. In the present study, cytotoxic activities of chloroform-methanol extracts (1:1) of underground and overground parts of four Achillea species (A. monocephala, A. nobilis, A. goniocephala and A. sintenisii ) on HeLa (Human Cervical Carcinoma Cell Line) cell lines at concentrations 50, 100 and 250 �?¼g/mL were investigated. The cytotoxic activities were tested using a real-time analyzer (xCELLigence). The xCELLigence system was used with the disposable E-plate 96 for the measurements of solvent extracts, controls and medium. The impedance difference based measurements were caused by the cells attached to the E-Plate 96. Fortunately, all of the extracts showed very high cytotoxic activity depending on the concentration. The lower the extract concentration the lower the cytotoxic activity. The highest cytotoxic activities were shown by underground extracts of A. monocephala (-0.0142) and A. goniocephala (-0.0119).
