  1. aEach value represents Mean ± S.D., n = 10-12. NS., no significant difference.
  2. bThe significance of differences among four groups were analyzed by two-way ANOVA . Values not sharing a same superscript letters in the horizontal row are significantly different from one another by Duncan’s Multiple Range Test (p < 0.05).
