Figure 1: Conversion of cultured mice RAW 264.7 cells to foam cells after treatment with extracts of S. dulcis. (a) Control cells; (b) Cells treated with oxidised LDL resulting in foam cells (stained with Oil red O). The formation of foam cells is seen by the Oil red O stain taken up by cells as shown by the arrows. (c) Cells treated with oxidised LDL and 30 ìg/ml methanol extract. Note absence of foam cells as evident from the absence of stained cells
