Objective: To investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying chitosan nanoparticles containing S-nitrosomercaptosuccinic acid (S-nitroso-MSA-CS) induced cytotoxicity in melanoma cells.
Summary: Melanoma cells were more sensitive to cell death than normal melanocytes. S-Nitroso-MSA-CS-induced cytotoxicity exhibited features of caspase-dependent apoptosis, and it was associated with oxidative stress, characterized by increased mitochondrial superoxide production and oxidation of protein thiol groups.
