  • Cells were cultured in either 2% human serum (HS) or 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS)‐containing media for seven days. Data are mean ± SD, = 5. Two‐way ANOVA with Bonferroni's post hoc tests. *< 0.05, **< 0.001 versus Huh7 cells in the same serum condition; matching symbols denote significant differences between means for Huh7 () and HepG2 cells (), < 0.05.
