Description of this data

The dataset represents biological assays, conducted to determine the inhibitory activity of extracts from 12 South African medicinal plants on selected inflammatory enzymes, as well as their ability to reduce nitric oxide production, in response to inflammatory stimulation with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in macrophage cells.

The viability of macrophage cells and confirmation of cytotoxicity status of active extracts was done on Vero cells using the MTT assay.

Results of antioxidant scavenging capacity of extracts are also presented.

NMR spectroscopic data are presented as mestronova files while the amount of phenolic and flavonoid contents in the extracts were determined from a calibration curve of gallic acid and quercetin as shown in the data set.

All experiments were carried out according to standard protocols as described in the full article.
