The effect on cellular redox markers in absence (NaAsO 2 ) and presence of AEIA (NaAsO 2 + AEIA) in isolated murine hepatocytes. Panel A. Effect on intracellular ROS production was detected by fluorescence microscopy using DCF-DA in Cd-exposed hepatocytes in absence (NaAsO2) and presence of AEIA (NaAsO2 + AEIA). Panel B. Effect on antioxidant parameters viz. lipid peroxidation, protein carbonylation, CAT, SOD, GR, GPx, GST and GSH in absence (NaAsO2) and presence of AEIA (NaAsO2 + AEIA) in isolated murine hepatocytes. Values were expressed as mean ± SE (n = 3). #Values differed significantly from normal control (p < 0.01). $ Values differ significantly from normal control (p < 0.05). *Values differed significantly from NaAsO2 control (p < 0.05). **Values differed significantly from NaAsO2 control (p < 0.01). CAT unit, ‘U’ is defined as μmoles of H2O2 consumed per minute. SOD unit, ‘U’ is defined as the μmoles inhibition of NBT reduction per minute.
