NO rfagrantissima secreted by the activate cells were measured using Griess reagent, ROS levels were measured by 2’7′-dichlorofluorescein diacetate DCF-DAMMP-9 activity was measured using gel zymography, and the protein levels of the proinflammatory enzymes cyclooxygenase-2 COX-2 and induced nitric oxide synthase iNOS were measured by Western blot analysis.


In the present study, extracts from 66 different desert plants were tested for their effect on achjllea LPS – induced production of NO by primary microglial cells.
