  1. Experiments were performed in triplicate and results are expressed as mean diameter (mm) of the colonies (± standard deviation) after 72 hours of incubation at 37°C. *indicates statistically significant difference between control and inhibitor of melanin biosynthesis (unpaired Student's t-test; P < 0.05).
