From: Pleurotus giganteus (Berk. Karun & Hyde), the giant oyster mushroom inhibits NO production in LPS/H2O2 stimulated RAW 264.7 cells via STAT 3 and COX-2 pathways

Effects of ethanol extracts of P. giganteus (EPG) studied at different concentrations on lipopolysaccharide (LPS) – induced nitric oxide (NO) production by RAW 264.7 macrophage cells. Control = negative control (untreated cells); L-NAME = L-NG-nitro arginine Methyl Ester (100 μM). Each bar represents the mean of NO production, defined as ratio of absorbance of treated to untreated cells (%) ± SD of three independent experiments carried out in triplicates. The different alphabets denote significant difference (p < 0.05) from the corresponding value for control
