Table 1 The cytotoxic effect of LfcinB and KW5 against FEMX and HT-29 cells.

From: The anticancer activity of lytic peptides is inhibited by heparan sulfate on the surface of the tumor cells

Peptides FEMX
aIC50 (μM)
HT-29
IC50 (μM)
Ratio(IC50)HT-29 cells/FEMX cells
LfcinB 40 ± 7 148 ± 8 3.7
KW5 30 ± 3 55 ± 14 1.8
  1. aIC50 is the inhibitory concentration of the peptides where 50% of the cells are killed.
  2. Data are mean ± SEM (n = 5).
