The cytotoxicity of SM (digitonin, EGCG, menthol, thymol, aromadendrene, [bata]-sitosterol-0-glucoside, [bata]-carotene, glaucine, harmine, and sanguinarine) was determined using the MIT assay (Mosmann 1983).
The order of the inhibitory efficiency (average of both fluorescent probes) of 40 [micro]M of SM relative to verapamil (100%) was glaucine > sanguinarine > harmine >[bata]-carotene > EGCG >[bata]-sitosterol-O-glucoside > aromadendrene and > thymol > menthol (Table 1).
