Morphological changes of HT-29 cells observed under an inverted light microscope. a Untreated HT-29 cells, HT-29 cells treated with water extract of brewers’ rice (WBR) at concentrations of b 16 μg/mL, c 32 μg/mL, and d 64 μg/mL. The cells showed typical characteristics of apoptosis, such as nuclear compaction (NC), apoptotic bodies (AB), membrane blebbing (MB), cellular shrinkage (CS), and nuclear fragmentation (NF) (magnification 400×). Scale bars in the figures indicate 50 μm (Source: Tan et al. [19])
