  1. Values are expressed as means ± SE
  2. GPx glutathione peroxidase (U/mg protein), GST glutathione S-transferase (μmol/h/mg protein), CAT catalase (μmol H2O2consumed/min/mg protein), SOD superoxide dismutase (U/mg protein)
  3. aThe mean values are significantly different compared to a control group at P < 0.05
  4. bThe mean values are significantly different compared to triton-intoxicated group at P < 0.05
