Table 1 Changes in MDA levels of human lymphocytes incubated with different concentrations of Dimethoate (0, 40, 60,and 100 mM), quercetin (20 μg/ml)

From: Protective effect of quercetin against oxidative stress caused by dimethoate in human peripheral blood lymphocytes

Experimental Groups MDA mg/mg proteins
Control 2.03 ± 0.1
Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 2.67 ± 0.71#
Dim (40 mM) 3.62 ± 0.22*
Dim (40 mM)+ Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 2.99 ± 0.15#
Dim (60 mM) 4.51 ± 0.44*
Dim (60 mM)+ Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 3.83 ± 0.31#
Dim (100 mM) 5.92 ± 0.17*
Dim (100 mM)+ Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 4.72 ± 0.34#
  1. The values are expressed as means ± SD; n = 20; controls are lymphocytes without Dimethoate, lymphocytes incubated with quercetin (20 μg/ml). # p < 0.05, compared with treatments without quercetin (20 μg/ml), compared with controls (lymphocytes without Dimethoate).
