  1. Samples tagged with VIE were investigated. Both dead samples and eliminated VIE tags were excluded from the analysis. Values are mean ± S.E. (n = 50). The experiment was performed in triplicate. The values in each column that do not share a common superscript are significantly different from one another (P < 0.05)
