Animal Models of Steatosis (NAFLD) and Steatohepatitis (NASH) Exhibit Hepatic Lobe-Specific Gelatinases Activity and Oxidative Stress
Hepatic content in MMP-2 and MMP-9 activity ((a) and (b)) and MMP-2 and MMP-9 protein levels ((c) and (d)) obtained from LL, ML, and RL in NASH and control rats. MMP gelatinase activity is expressed as optical density (OD) for mm2, related to 1 mg/mL protein content. MMP protein content is expressed in ng/mL. Data are shown as mean values ± SE. p<0.05.
