Cell Culture Phototoxicity Test
Human A431 cells and mouse 3T3 cells are exposed in culture to UV light both in the presence and absence of test compound. Phototoxicity is expressed as a decrease in cell viability as determined by the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl-tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay.
