Figure 2: Cytoprotective effects of Spirulina maxima on glutamate-injured HT22 cells. Cells were pretreated with three different concentrations of Spirulina maxima (1, 10, or 100 μg/mL) and trolox as positive control for an hour followed by stimulation with 2.5 mM glutamate. Cell viability was evaluated by the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay. Data are presented as means ± standard deviation (n = 5, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, and ***P < 0.001 verses only glutamate-treated group)
