Biochemistry and Nanomechanical Properties of Human Colon Cells upon Simvastatin, Lovastatin, and Mevastatin Supplementations: Raman Imaging and AFM Studies.

Publication Date Sep 9, 2022


One of the most important areas of medical science is oncology, which is responsible for both the diagnostics and treatment of cancer diseases. Over the years, there has been an intensive development of cancer diagnostics and treatment. This paper shows the comparison of normal (CCD-18Co) and cancerous (CaCo-2) cell lines of the human gastrointestinal tract on the basis of nanomechanical and biochemical properties to obtain information on cancer biomarkers useful in oncological diagnostics. The research techniques used were Raman spectroscopy and imaging and atomic force microscopy (AFM). In addition, the studies also included the effect of the statin compounds─mevastatin, lovastatin, and simvastatin─and their influence on biochemical and nanomechanical changes of cell properties using Raman imaging and AFM techniques. The cytotoxicity of statins was determined using XTT tests.
