GE concentrations were 60, 120, and 240 mg/kg/day. Metformin (MET) is used as positive control. Values expressed are means ± S.D of triplicate measurements. For same enzyme level with various treatment groups, superscripts in the different bar with different alphabets (a–c) were significantly different ( ). Superscripts with same alphabets were not significantly different between the treated groups ( ).
