Alternative methods to the MTT assay, such as BrdU (DNA-based) and CellTiter-Glo (ATP-based) assays were evaluated to assess anthocyanin cytotoxicity, derived from blackberry in LNCaP, MCF-7 and MDA-MB-453 cell lines. The standard cell counting method was the reference assay. Greater correlation of cell viability values following anthocyanin exposure was obtained from multiple cell lines with the alternative assays when compared with cell counting. MTT and cell counting results were not always correlated, albeit this was a function of cell type. In particular, poor correlations between cell counting and MTT procedures used to assess cytotoxicity of anthocyanins were observed in the MDA-MB-453 cell lines. Comparison of cytotoxicity derived from alternative assays and the MTT assays with the cell counting method was dependent on the assay procedure and the cell type. The LC50 of blackberry crude extract ranged from 0.4 to 9.4 mg/mL between assays and across all cell lines, whereas a semi-purified anthocyanin extract was not cytotoxic. Cytotoxicity evaluation of polyphenolic-rich extracts using BrdU and CellTiter-Glo assays as alternatives to the MTT method is recommended.
