Figure 6

Expression of peroxiredoxin 6 (Prdx6) and catalase in LECs from 9-week-old SCRs after access ad libitum chow with or without LU and TBE from the age of 6 weeks. (a) The expression of Prdx6 mRNA. (b) The expression of catalase mRNA. (c) The expression of Prdx6 protein. (d) The expression of catalase protein. Data are expressed as the . , . LEC: lens epithelial cells; SCR: Shumiya cataract rats; LU: lutein; TBE: Trapa bispinosa extract.
