Table 2. Activities of superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, and glutathione S-transferase in lens

Emblica (Group IV) and tannoids (Group III) treatment partially prevented the altered activities of antioxidant enzymes in untreated diabetic group (Group II). Group I: Control rats. The data are the mean±SD (n=3). SOD activity is expressed as units/min/100 mg protein. The activity of GPx and GST is expressed as μmoles of NADPH oxidized/h/100 mg protein and mmoles of CDNB-GSH conjugate formed/h/100 mg protein, respectively. The asterisk denotes that data are significantly different from Group I and the sharp (hash mark) denotes that data are significantly different from Group II.
