Figure 3: Effect of saponin of Momordica cymbalaria on the inhibition of LPS-induced expression of COX-2, iNOS, and PGE2 in RAW264.7 cells. (a) Western blot; (b and c) densitometric analysis of COX-2 and iNOS; and (d) ELISA of PGE2. Values are expressed as mean ± standard error of the mean (n = 4). ***P < 0.001 compared with the normal control; ###P < 0.001, ##P < 0.01 compared with the LPS control. COX-2: Cycloxygenase-2; LPS: Lipopolysaccharide; iNOS: Inducible nitric oxide synthase; PGE2: Prostaglandin E2; ELISA: enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay
