Effect of CCl4 with or without prior administration of natansnin on glutathione (oxidized & reduced) levels in liver. Reduced and oxidized glutathione levels were measured in liver homogenate from control, CCl4 and natansnin (10 mg/kg, 20 mg/kg body weight) treated rats. Values are given as percent control, and are mean ± S.D. of at least four animals. Glutathione levels are expressed as μmoles per gram tissue. The control values of GSH and GSSG were 32.12 ± 2.6, 11.3 ± 0.71 respectively. a = Statistical significant at P < 0.05 as compare to control, b = Statistical significant at P < 0.05 as compare to CCl4, c = Statistical significant at P < 0.05 as compare to CCl4+ natansnin (10 mg).
