  1. Values were expressed as mean ± SE (n = 6). #Values differ significantly from normal control (p < 0.01). $Values differ significantly from normal control (p < 0.01). *Values differ significantly from NaAsO2 control (p < 0.05). **Values differ significantly from NaAsO2 control (p < 0.01). Group I: Normal control; Group II: NaAsO2 (10 μM) control; Group III: NaAsO2 (10 μM) + AEIA (400 μg/ml).
