In the present study, we have evaluated cytotoxic effects of Taraxaci herba extract on human skin melanoma cells. The light microscopic study showed morphological changes of the treated cells. Disruptions in cell organelles were determined by calorimetric methods: MTT (3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl-2H-tetrazoliumbromide), NR (Neutral red) and SRB (Sulforhodamine B protein) assay. These results suggest that Taraxaci herba retains a potential antitumor activity.
