Protective Effects of Crocetin against Radiation-Induced Injury in Intestinal Epithelial Cells

Figure 3

Crocetin attenuated oxidative stress in irradiated IEC-6 cells. The activities of (a) SOD, (b) MDA, (c) GPx, and (d) CAT in cell culture supernatants were detected on days 1, 3, 5, and 7 after radiation. Data were expressed as of three independent experiments. compared to the control group, compared to the IR group. SOD: superoxide dismutase; MDA: malondialdehyde; GPx: glutathione peroxidase; CAT: catalase; IR group: irradiation group, IEC-6 cells exposed to 10G y of radiation. Control group: IEC-6 cells without irradiation or crocetin.
