  1. Values are expressed as Mean ± SEM. Different alphabets show that the values are significantly different while the same alphabets demonstrate that the values produce same result
  2. * = p < 0.05, ** = p < 0.001, *** = p < 0.0001
  3. aValue vs NA control, bValue vs NSA control, cValue vs SA-1
