Effect of Estragole on Leukocyte Behavior and Phagocytic Activity of Macrophages

Figure 4

Effect of different concentrations of the EST on phagocytosis and NO production. (a) Phagocytosis index in macrophages. The peritoneal macrophages were incubated with EST (3, 10, 30, and 60 μg/mL) for 24 hours at 37°C with 5% CO2. LPS 20 μg/mL was used as positive control. (b) NO production in peritoneal macrophages. Values represent mean ± SEM ( ) and are representative of three independent experiments. versus negative control (one-way ANOVA, Tukey’s test).
