  1. Values are expressed as mean ± SE (n = 3). #Values differ significantly from normal control (p < 0.01). $ Values differ significantly from normal control (p < 0.05). * Values differ significantly from CdCl2 control (p < 0.05). ** Values differ significantly from CdCl2 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.
