CQ potentiates apoptosis of HT-29 cells induced by 5-FU. The population of annexin V+ apoptotic cells were evaluated by FCM using annexin V-FITC/PI staining in HT-29 cells after CQ-pretreatment at 80 μM for 12 hours, followed by 5-FU at 5 μM for 48 hours. The percentage of annexin V+ apoptotic cells increased by pretreatment with CQ followed by 5-FU (16.5% vs 19.2% for 5-FU alone and CQ+5-FU, respectively). Values were given as mean ± SD.
