Reproduction Does Not Adversely Affect Liver Mitochondrial Respiratory Function but Results in Lipid Peroxidation and Increased Antioxidants in House Mice

Fig 3

Relative antioxidant levels for non-reproductive (NR) and post-reproductive (PR) female house mice.

Levels of Copper-zinc superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD), manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD), catalase, and glutathione peroxidase 1 (Gpx-1) in isolated liver mitochondria of non-reproductive and post-reproductive female mice are given. Each graph included standard error bars and representative blots. Concentrations were quantified by protein densities of Western blot bands and normalized by concentrations of α-tubulin. Non-reproductive, n = 4; Post-reproductive, n = 15; * p<0.05, significantly different compared to non-reproductive group.
