Effects of EOFAZ on GSH-Px activity in HUVECs exposed to ox-LDL. HUVECs treatment and cell lysate preparation were performed as described in Figure 3. GSH-Px activity was determined by quantifying the rate of oxidation of the reduced glutathione (GSH) to the oxidized glutathione (GSSG) by H2O2, which is catalyzed by GSH-Px. The values shown are mean ± S.E.M. of three experiments (four or five cultures per experiment). ##p < 0.01, vs. control group; *p < 0.05, vs. ox-LDL group.
