Lifespan Extending and Oxidative Stress Resistance Properties of a Leaf Extracts from Anacardium occidentale L. in Caenorhabditis elegans
Effect of AO extracts on the survival rate of wild-type (a), CF1038 (b), and EU1 (c) worms under oxidative stress induced by juglone. AO extracts protect against oxidative stress in wild-type C. elegans as evidenced by the survival rate of wild-type (N2) worms, which was significantly enhanced after pretreatment with the extracts. However, AO extracts failed to increase the survival rate in CF1038 and EU1 worms. Worms were treated with AO hexane and methanol extracts at different concentrations. DMSO and EGCG were used as the solvent control and positive control groups. Data are presented as the (, replicated three times). and , compared to the DMSO control by one-way ANOVA following Bonferroni’s method (post hoc).
