Effect of ethanol extract of P. giganteus (EPG) on the (a) iNOS and (b) COX-2 expression in lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophage cells. Results are expressed as fold of increase compared to LPS treatment as control. Fold increase values are calculated relative to the ACTB gene. Control = cell treated with LPS only; Dexa = dexamethasone; Asp = Aspirin; EPG = ethanol extract of P. giganteus at 10 μg/mL. Data expressed as mean ± S.D (n = 3). The different alphabets denote significant difference (p < 0.05) from the corresponding value for control
