ALP activity assay. Cellular ALP activity was monitored in cells cultured in serum treated with water (control, group A); a low concentration of QEF (group B); a medium concentration of QEF (group C); and a high concentration of QEF (group D). Activity appears to gradually increase in each group for the first 15 days in culture, with the ALP in groups C and D being significantly (P < 0.05) more active than that of groups A. This difference is even more evident from day 15 to day 20, as the ALP activity in groups A and B decreased slightly while that of C and D remained high. The values are expressed as means ± SD; P < 0.05 compared to group A at the specified time point
