Figure 6

Effects of lutein on the mRNA expression of CuZnSOD, MnSOD and GPx in the eyes of the mice treated with LPS. (A) Agarose gel electrophoresis of RT-PCR amplication of CuZnSOD, MnSOD, GPx mRNA and β-actin mRNA. (B) Densiometric analysis of PCR products. Results were generated as relative intensity units by densitometry and expressed as the ratio to β-actin. The results are presented as mean ± SD obtained from 18 animals in each group. ##P < 0.01: significantly different from the control group and *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01: from the model group
