Supplementary Material

The information of supplementary materials are as follows: Supplemental Table 1. The Effects of N. species extracts on Th1/Th2 cytokine production by ConA-stimulated splenocytes. Supplemental Fig 1. The effects of selected Neolitsea species extracts on IL-12 secretions by ConA-stimulated splenocytes. ConA-stimulated splenocytes (5*106cells/mL) were either left untreated (NA) or re-stimulated with ConA (5 µg/mL) in the absence or the presence of selected Neolitsea species (5-50 µg/mL) for 48 h. (A-C) The levels of IL-12 secretions in the supernatants were quantified by ELISA assay. Data were expressed as the mean ± SE of quadruplicate cultures. Results were representative of two independent experiments. *p<0.05 was significant compared to the VH group.
