Effect of metabolic stress on cell proliferation in different cancer cell lines. KCL22 (Leukemia), KG1 (Leukemia), KU812 (Leukemia), SW480 (Colon cancer), SW620 (Colon cancer) and A549 (Lung Cancer) cells were cultivated under lipoprotein deficient medium (LPDS serum), low-serum (LS) medium (2% serum), hypoxia (Hyp, 2% O2), or hypoxia in combination with LS medium (Hyp + LS). The number of live cells was counted using a trypan blue dye exclusion method, after 48 h of culturing. The dashed line indicates the initial seeding density of cells.*Significantly different (*p ≤ 0,05; **p ≤ 0,01; ***p ≤ 0,001), n.s not significant (p > 0,05)
