  1. The cytotoxicities of the mushroom extracts were measured at the end-point (48 h) by MTT assay. The CC50, 50% cytotoxic concentrations capable of reducing the absorbance by 50% in comparison to the negative control cells without extract, were estimated from dose response curves of three independent experiment using probit analysis (n = 3). Statistical differences compared to untreated cell control group are noted with asterisk (*P < 0.05) or (**p < 0.01)
