G 2 arrest of HeLa cells following the treatment with the peptidic pool. A: DNA distributions for control (left) and treated (right) HeLa cells after treatment with 5 μg/ml of the peptide pool for 12 h. B: Cell cycle changes after 12, 24 and 48 hours of incubation with 5 μg/ml of peptide pool. Percentage of cells in: (black) G1 phase; (white) S phase; (grey) G2/M phase; c: control cells; t: treated cells. C: Distribution of the cells in the mitosis phases following incubation for 24 hours with (grey bars) 2.5 μg/ml or with (white bars) 5 μg/ml of peptides; (black bars) control cells.
