Concentration-dependent inducing NO release in the J774 cells. Cells were treated with various concentrations of hydrobenzoin, 5-HMF and benzyl alcohol for 24 h, in the presence of 100 ng/ml LPS. After incubation, the NO accumulation in the medium was determined by the Griess reaction. Means not sharing a common letter (a-d) were significantly different (p < 0.05) when analyzed by ANOVA and Duncan's multiple range test.
