From: Protective effect of rutin on the antioxidant genes expression in hypercholestrolemic male Westar rat

Group MDA (mmol/g) GSH (nmol/100mg) H2O2 (μM)
Control (rat chow) 256±7.21 171.91±7.48 1.3±0.6
Rutin (0.2%) 260.50±7.49 170.53±4.06 1.1±0.43
High cholesterol diet 315.34±6.79* 143.07±2.16* 5.9±1.1*
