From: The ameliorative effect of monotropein, astragalin, and spiraeoside on oxidative stress, endoplasmic reticulum stress, and mitochondrial signaling pathway in varicocelized rats

  1. Data are presented in mean ± SEM. The differences were tested by one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s post hoc test; n = 10 for each group. *Significant at P < 0.05; ** Significant at P < 0.01; *** Significant at P < 0.001- versus CTR group; # Significant at P < 0.05; ##Significant at P < 0.01; - versus VC group.
