Anti-cancer activity of dung beetle glycosaminoglycan against melanoma cells. a Glycosaminoglycans and N-glycans were purified from insect sources: C. molossus, B. igitus queen, and H. sanguinea. b Measurement of growth ratios of melanoma (B16/F10) cells treated with N-glycans from various insect glycosaminoglycans for two days. CaG: dung beetle (C. molossus) glycosaminoglycan (40 μg/ml); IQG: bumblebee (B. ignitus) queen glycosaminoglycan (40 μg/ml); HEG: H. sanguinea glycosaminoglycan (40 μg/ml). Each value represents mean ± SE. n = 3. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 significant difference vs. control (PBS) group
