In this article, we report the pre-screening of anti-cancer effect of Calotropis procera against glioblastoma cell lines (LN-18) by means of electrochemical methods. Soxhlet assisted extraction (SAE) has been employed to extract the polyphenol contents present in the leaf of Calotropis procera. The phytochemical analysis of the extract has been studied and the polyphenol contents were determined using Folin Ciocalteau method. To study the anticancer effects of the aqueous plant extract, a cytosensor (Gr/NT-G/LN-18) was fabricated and its possible mechanism for DNA binding was studied using graphite/ poly(allylamine hydrochloride)/nanotube-graphene composite /polypyrrole /de-oxy ribonucleic acid (Gr/PAH/NT-G/PPy/DNA) modified electrode. The electrochemical characteristics of the proposed Gr/NT-G/LN-18 cytosensor towards the plant extract were evaluated using electrochemical techniques like cyclic voltammetry and differential pulse voltammetry. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive analysis of x-ray (EDAX) have been employed to study the physical characterization of the Gr/PAH/NT-G/PPy/DNA modified electrode. These results indicate that the plant extract has an ability to act as an antiglioblastoma against LN-18 cancer cells.
