The present study reports potential activities like cytotoxic, genotoxic and apoptotic activity of phenolic compound 4-(4-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)hexahydrofuro[3,4-c]furan-1-yl)-2-methoxyphenyl acetate isolated from methanolic extract of Pandanus odorattissimus. The compound showed a significant cytotoxic effect on Human Leukemia 60 (HL-60) cell line. Exposure of the compound reduced the viability of HL-60 cells after 12, 24 and 48 hours, the compound exerted a significant cytotoxic effect on HL-60 cells. The compound also induced significant DNA damage. The results of comet assay with pattern of the HL-60 cells has shown an intact head and complete absence of DNA fragments in the form of tail suggesting that the doses are not genototoxic. The phenolic compound at concentration of 20 µg/mL, showed an increase in percentage tail of DNA upto 6.21 units when compared to control 5.35. Although all of the compound induced significant DNA damage it induced apoptotic in the middle level and led to significant level. Apoptotic effect of compound on HL-60 cells after 72 h increased. Furthermore, the compound induced slight necrosis in HL-60 cells. Although the compound induced significant DNA damage, it induced apoptotic at the middle level. Apoptotic effect of compound on HL cells after 72 hrs increased level, furthermore the compound induced slight necrosis in HL-60 cells.
