  1. NC = normal control; TC = toxic control; MDA = malondialdehyde; GSH = glutathione; CAT = catalase. Values were analyzed with a one-way ANOVA and then expressed as mean ± SEM. ##p < 0.01; ###p < 0.001; ####p < 0.0001; compared to NC; **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001; ****p < 0.0001; compared to TC. n = 5
