Figure 5: Effect of Algae extracts on day 14 CFU-GM and BFU-E from normal light-density bone marrow. The dose response of algae extracts on colony outgrowth when cultured with methylcellulose and 3 U/ml erythropoietin, 10 ng/ml GM-CSF, 10 ng/ml IL-3, 10 ng/ml IL-6, 10 ng/ml G-CSF, and 50 ng/ml stem-cell factor are shown. Data shown is normalized to conditions with vehicle control ± standard errors of three independent experiments (*indicates ).
