Prepregnancy Obesity, Maternal Dietary Intake, and Oxidative Stress Biomarkers in the Fetomaternal Unit
Oxidative stress and antioxidant capacity markers in the fetomaternal unit. GPx4 expression was lower in placenta of the group with BMI indicative of obesity (p < 0.05). Data is presented as mean ± standard deviation. MDA: malondialdehyde (µmol/L). TAC: total antioxidant capacity (nmol/µl/µg protein). GPx4: glutathione peroxidase 4 (log of arbitrary units of optical density). p< 0.05. The concentration of MDA in cord serum in both groups was lower than in maternal serum (p < 0.01).
