Flaxseed Oil Containing α-Linolenic Acid Ester of Plant Sterol Improved Atherosclerosis in ApoE Deficient Mice
Effects of FO+ALA-PS on aortic ROS production and the levels of MDA and GSH in serum and liver of mice. ROS in the aorta of the mice was detected by using DHE which reacts with ROS and forms ETH that binds to DNA and produces red fluorescence signal, visualized with fluorescence microscope (×200) and quantified (a). Fluorescence intensities in randomly selected areas of the images were quantified by using the IPP image analysis software. Values are given as mean ± standard deviation of the mean () (b). Values are means for serum MDA level (c), liver MDA level (d), serum GSH level (e), and liver GSH level (f) () with standard deviations represented by vertical bars. versus the control; versus the HFD group; versus the FO group.
