Effect of EMM on LPS-induced NO and PGE2production in RAW 264.7 cells. Cells pretreated with different concentrations of EMM for 1 h were stimulated with LPS (1 μg/mL) for 24 h. The treated culture media were used to measure the amount of NO production (A) and PGE2 production (B). Cytotoxic effect of EMM was measured by MTS assay (C). Values are the means ± SDs of three independent experiments. ap < 0.05 indicates significant differences compared to the control group. bp < 0.05 indicates significant differences compared to the LPS-only treated group.
