Table 1 Relative intensity of immune-reactive protein bands (enzyme/actin)

From: Larrea divaricata Cav. aqueous extract and nordihydroguariaretic acid modulate oxidative stress in submandibular glands of diabetic rats: a buccal protective in diabetes

Glands Relative intensity of immune-reactive protein bands (enzyme/actin)
Px SOD
Control 1.87 ± 0.1 1.40 ± 0.10
STZ 1 ± 0.1 ** 1 ± 0.1*
STZ + NDGA 2 ± 0.2 # 1.47 ± 0.06 #
STZ + AE 3.8 ± 0.4 ## 2.8 ± 0.3 ##
  1. The relative intensity was determined by densitometry analysis of immunoreactive bands with a software. Control: without treatment, STZ streptozotocin, NDGA nordihydroguaiaretic acid, AE aqueous extract of L. divaricata, Px peroxidase, SOD superoxide dismutase. Results represent Mean ± SEM of three determinations made by duplicate. * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01significantly differences between submandibulary glands from normal control and submandibulary glands from STZ- treated animals, # P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01 significantly differences between glands from STZ control and STZ + AE or NDGA treated glands in accordance with ANOVA+ Dunnett’s test. AE: 500 μg/ml, NDGA: 1.5 μg/ml
