Introduction
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the antiproliferative activity of dehydrocostus lactone against human BON-1 cancer cell lines and to explore the possible underlying mechanism.

Material and methods
MTT cell viability assay was used to determine cytotoxic effects of dehydrocostus lactone in BON-1 cells. Fluorescence and transmission electron microscopic (TEM) techniques were used to study the effect of the compound on cellular morphology and apoptosis. Flow cytometry was used to assess the effect on cell cycle phase distribution. Effects of the drug on cell apoptosis and mitochondrial membrane potential were analyzed by flow cytometry using annexin v and rhodamine-123 as fluorescent probes.

Results
The results of the present study indicated that dehydrocostus lactone significantly (p < 0.01) inhibited the growth of BON-1 cancer cells. These growth inhibitory effects of dehydrocostus lactone on BON-1 were found to be time and concentration-dependent. The IC50 of dehydrocostus lactone were found to be 71.9 µM and 52.3 µM at 24 and 48 h time intervals respectively. The growth inhibitory effects of dehydrocostus lactone were found to be due to loss of mitochondrial membrane potential, the induction of apoptosis and sub-G1 cell cycle arrest.

Conclusions
Dehydrocostus inhibits in vitro gastrinoma cancer cell growth and therefore may prove beneficial in the management of gastrinoma cancer.
