  • NOTE: The cells mentioned in Figure 8B were treated with PBS (0 μmol/L peptide aptamer) or increasing concentrations (0.5, 1, and 2 μmol/L) of peptide aptamer hTrx-DD3-3.8Δcys or the empty scaffold (hTrx-Δcys5). After 96 h, proliferation of the cells was measured in an XTT assay. The proliferation rate of the PBS-treated cells was set to 100% for each cell line and compared with the peptide aptamer - treated cells.
