ABSTRACT

Natural products have been considered good tools for prospecting of new active drugs or models for new therapeutic drugs. Coumarins are a group of natural phenolic compounds that shows several pharmacological activities and the 3-hydroxycoumarin represents as target valuable molecules against several diseases. The aim of present work was to investigate the cytotoxic activity of 3-hydroxycoumarin on Vero and HeLa cells and its action on the morphology of these cells line. Cytotoxicity was measured using MTT assay and the morphological features were evaluated by phase-contrast microscopy. Significant toxicity was determined for both cell lines and morphological changes were observed from 100 μg/mL. Further studies are needed to investigate other activities of this coumarin and determine potential applications.

Keywords: 3-hydroxycoumarin, cytotoxic activity, HeLa cells, Vero cells, morphological analysis.
