Table 2 Changes in thiol (SH) 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 SH level mg/mg proteins
Control 4.33 ± 0.1
Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 4.31 ± 0.1#
Dim (40 mM) 2.53 ± 0.32*
Dim (40 mM)+ Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 3.39 ± 0.55#
Dim (60 mM) 5.67 ± 0.2*
Dim (60 mM)+ Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 4.71 ± 0.3#
Dim (100 mM) 6.81 ± 0.12*
Dim (100 mM)+ Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 5.41 ± 0.31#
  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).
