Figure 7

Effect of different treatments on the hippocampal redox state. Each value represents the mean of 8 rats ± SE. In the same column, the different letters indicate a significant difference between groups using one-way ANOVA by using SPSS software (version 22) followed by Duncan at . Superoxide dismutase (SOD, U/mg protein); catalase (CAT, U/mg protein); reduced glutathione (GSH, nmol/mg protein); vitamin C (vit C, μmol/g tissue); protein carbonyl (PC, nmol/mg protein); malondialdehyde (MDA, nmol/g tissue); and nitric oxide (NO, μmol/mg protein). One unit of SOD corresponds to the enzyme required to inhibit half of the oxidation of pyrogallol; one unit of CAT is defined as the amount of enzymes required to decompose 1 m mole of hydrogen peroxide in 1 min.
