Breast cancer a common among cancer types in women, every year more than 1,000 women (<40 age) die from breast cancer. There are many different types of breast cancers. More studies try to find spesific predictive and prognostic biomarkers. L-carnosine is a dipeptide, occuring histidine and used in various cancer cell lines. Which has been shown anti-tumor effets for a variety of cells derived from different cancer. On the other hand, which plays as an antioxidant and scavenges intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS), and then apoptosis. We aimed at investigating the potential anti-tumor effects of L-carnosine in MCF7 cancer cells. We examined different concentration to find L-carnosine’s inhibitory effect.
