The ameliorating effects of Beta vulgaris juice (BVJ), dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA), and their combination (BVJ-DMSA) on Pb-induced inflammation and DNA fragmentation in liver tissue of Pb-intoxicated rats. (I) interleukin (IL)-6 levels (II) nitric oxide (NO) levels (III) the % of DNA fragmentation level (IV) Heat map diagram clustering all the tested biochemical parameters that were elevated by Pb. The deep blue color indicates the higher values or activities and the light color refers to the lower ones. Results are shown as mean values (n = 8). Different letters for the same parameter are significantly different at p < 0.05.C, control; ALT,alanine aminotransferase; AST, aspartate aminotransferase; ALP, alkaline phosphatase
