The scavenging activity of HEPS and production of ROS on Aβ-induced neurotoxicity in PC12 cells upon pretreatment of HEPS. a Different concentrations (0.1, 0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2 mg/mL) of HEPS were added into PC12 cells the free radical scavenging activity was measured using the DPPH assay. BHA and Vit C (0.1 mg/mL) were used as positive controls. b The effect of HEPS (25, 50, 100, 200 and 250 μg/mL) on the production of ROS was followed by 1.2 μM Aβ-induced neurotoxicity in PC12 cells. The production of ROS was measured using an ROS assay kit. N indicates samples without HEPS. All values are mean ± SD and used a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA, n = 3 in panel A and n = 6 in panel B). All columns were significantly different (p < 0.05)
