  1. The values are means of three independent determinations. a,b,c Mean values within a column with different superscript letters differ significantly and were determined using one way ANOVA followed by Tukey and/or t-test as mentioned in Methods. Differences were considered statistically significant for p < 0.05, n = 3. Separate analysis was done for each column.
