Table 3: Effect of different treatments on lipid peroxidation (LPO), catalase (CAT), superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), glutathione reductase (GR), and reduced glutathione (GSH) in liver of female rats ( ; means ± S.E.).

GroupParameter
LPO
(nM MDA/mL)
CAT
(nM/min/mg protein)
SOD (U)*GR
(nM/min/mg protein)
GPx
(nM/min/mg protein)
GSH
(µM/g tissue)

Comparisons are between the rows. Values in the same column bearing no common superscripts (a, b, and c) differ significantly ( ).
*The activity was expressed as U/g of protein [one unit of SOD is the amount ( g) of protein required to inhibit the MTT reduction by 50%].
