rSj-Cys reduces the releasing of pro-inflammatory cytokines and nitrous oxide from murine peritoneal exudate cells stimulated with LPS. The adherent peritoneal exudate cells were cultured and stimulated with LPS in the presence or absence of rSj-Cys. The levels of TNF-α, IL-6, IL-1β and NO were measured in culture supernatants collected after 24 h incubation. The results are shown as the mean ± SEM for each group. *P < 0.05, ***P < 0.001
