Effect of Maternal Marginal Zinc Deficiency on Development, Redox Status, and Gene Expression Related to Oxidation and Apoptosis in an Avian Embryo Model

Figure 4

Effect of maternal dietary Zn on (a) MT content and (b) GSH-Px, (c) CAT, (d) TSOD, (e) CuZnSOD, and (f) MnSOD activities in embryonic livers at E29. All values are expressed as . Means with different letters (a–c) differ significantly (). Mean represented the average value of 6 replicates (). MZD: maternal Zn-deficient group (0 mg Zn/kg diet); MZA: maternal Zn-adequate group (60 mg Zn/kg diet); MZH: maternal Zn-high group (120 mg Zn/kg diet); MT: metallothionein; GSH-Px: glutathione peroxidase; CAT: catalase; TSOD: total superoxide dismutase; CuZnSOD: copper-zinc superoxide dismutase; MnSOD: manganese superoxide dismutase.
