  1. Presented values are means of triplicate determinations; ± indicates standard deviations from the mean. Mean values (±standard deviation) within the same column followed by different superscript letters are statistically significant (P < 0.05). In coaggregation, mean values (±standard deviation) within the same line followed by different superscript numbers were statistically significant (P < 0.05)
