  1. Results are mean ± S.E.M., n= 5 per group. One way ANOVA followed by Newman-Keuls Multiple Comparison Test.
  2. *Values significantly different from the PBS/DMSO group with p<0.05.
  3. aCatalase activity is expressed as μmol H2O2/min/mg of protein.
  4. bGPx activity and GR activity are expressed as nmol NADPH/min/mg of protein.
