Table 2 Relative intensity of immune-reactive protein bands (iNOS/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 (iNOS/actin)
Control 0.63 ± 0.06
STZ 1.17 ± 0.08**
STZ+ AE 0.68 ± 0.045#
STZ + NDGA 0.58 ± 0.04 ##
  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, iNOS inducible nitric oxide synthase. Results represent the Mean ± SEM of values from tree 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-treated control and STZ-treated + AE or NDGA in accordance with ANOVA+ Dunnett’s test. AE: 500 μg/ml, NDGA: 1.5 μg/ml
