Two variety dose-dependent reaction are observed. At high concentrations (10 mcg/mL or more), lysis of cells penetrate mitosis is observed. At low concentrations (0.3 to 10 mcg/mL), cells are prohibiting from entering prophase. It does not prevent microtubular assembly. The potent macromolecular effect of Etoposide results to be the DNA strand induction breaks by a combination with DNA topoisomerase II or the production of free radicals.
