In Vitro Antidiabetic Activity and Mechanism of Action of Brachylaena elliptica (Thunb.) DC
(a) and (b) The effect of aqueous extract of B. elliptica on the proliferation of INS-1 beta cells. INS-1 cells were cultured with or without the plant extract for 48 h, and the total cells and dead cells (cells stained with PI) were then determined using the ImageXpress Micro XLS analysis with a Hoechst 33342 dye for total cell counts and propidium iodide for dead cell counts. Data are expressed as mean ± SD (n= 8). indicates a significant increase relative to the untreated control (p < 0.05).
