Inhibition of DNA damage. Protection against oxidative damage to pUC18 by TCME. Picture of agarose gel of pUC18 DNA showing bands of supercoiled (SC) and open circular (OC) forms. Lanes on the gel represent: (Lane 1) control DNA (no H2O2 or Fe2+); (Lane 2) reaction mixture without extract; (Lane 3–12) reaction mixture with extract of increasing concentration (0.5-5 μg/ml). **p < 0.01 and ***p < 0.001 vs 0 μg/ml.
