Effect of different fractions of Oreocnide integrifolia on glucose uptake in C2C12 cells. Differentiated C2C12 cells were incubated with or without 100 nM of insulin along with various fractions. Glucose uptake was measured by using 2NBDG fluorescent probe. Values are expressed as ± SEM in triplicates where • = p < 0.01, ■ = p < 0.001, ♦ = p < 0.0001 when control group was compared with rest of the groups and α = p < 0.01, β = p < 0.01, δ = p < 0.01 when insulin treated group was compared to rest of the groups.
