Hepatic iron content regulation. Effect of TCME on hepatic iron content in different treated mouse liver. Mice were randomly divided into six groups (blank, B; control, C; 50 mg/kg b.w. TCME, S50; 100 mg/kg b.w. TCME, S100; 200 mg/kg b.w. TCME, S200; desirox group, D) and treated as described in ‘experimental design’ section. Values are expressed as mean ± SD of six mice. ***p ≤ 0.001 compared with blank and ##
p ≤ 0.01, ###
p ≤ 0.001 compared with control.
