Oxidative Stress and Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Pathways Involved in Cadmium-Induced BRL 3A Cell Apoptosis

Figure 5

Effect of Cd and NAC on MDA level (A), SOD activity, and GSH-Px activity (B) in BRL 3A cells. Cells were treated with 0 μmol/L to 40 μmol/L Cd and pre-treated with or without 2 mmol/L NAC for 12 h. Data are presented as mean ± SD of three independent experiments performed in triplicate. Significant difference: * , ** , compared with the control. # , ## , compared with the 20 μmol/L Cd group.
