Figure 3: Effect of Spirogyra neglecta extract on renal cortical MDA concentrations. Malondialdehyde concentrations (MDA) were determined in renal cortical tissue homogenates from each experimental group using commercial TBARS assay kit. The intensities were read using the absorbance colorimetric method at the wavelength of 540 nm. The results are expressed as mean ± S.E.M. (). indicates the significant differences from normal (ND) and indicates the significant differences from T2DM (DM) rats.
