Abstract
We have investigated the cellular toxicity and anti-cancer effects of Ni NWs in one of the most aggressive human pancreatic ductal cancer (Panc-1) cell lines with the objective of development of a potential cell selective pancreatic cancer treatment strategy. Ni NWs were fabricated in a custom-made setup utilizing the electrodeposition method. Elemental analysis, crystallographic structure, and morphological properties of the synthesized Ni NWs were investigated using, X-Ray Diffraction (X-RD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), respectively. Two commercially available and straight forward distinct cytotoxicity procedures including 3-(4, 5dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2, 5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) and trypan blue (TB) Assay were utilized to determine the qualitative and quantitative cytotoxicity and anti-cancer effects of Ni NWs. The elemental composition study and XRD demonstrated that the Ni NWs prepared in this study are pure Ni with face-centered cubic (fcc) lattice rather than Ni compounds. Both the MTT and TB assays, qualitatively and quantitatively confirmed the cytotoxic and anti-cancer effects of Ni NWs treated Panc-1 cells in vitro in both concentration and exposure-time dependent manners. We explored the molecular mechanisms associated with the biological pathway involved in Ni NWs induced toxicity against Panc-1 cells. Our results evidence that Ni NWs show strong candidacy for targeting cell selective pancreatic cancer therapy.
