Cytotoxic and melanin inhibitory effect of D. puetteri ethanolic extract (DPE) on B16F10 cells. a Cytotoxicity of α-MSH and DPE on B16F10 cells. b Melanin inhibitory effect of DPE on α-MSH-stimulated B16F10 cells. Cells were cultured with 0 ~ 200 μg/mL of DPE for 48 h. After incubation, the melanin content was analyzed. Melanin content results are presented as the percentage to non-treated group. Data points and bars represent the arithmetic means ± SEM (n = 3). *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01
