How to use

In Vitro:

Cearoin (10-80 μM) induces cell death in a dose-dependent manner. Cearoin (10-80 μM) increases the phosporylation of ERK in SH-SY5Y cells. Cearoin (5-80 μM) increases the conversion of LC3B-I to LC3B-II in SH-SY5Y cells. The expression of LC3B-II is a good marker for autophagosome formation in the autophagy process.
