Table 3 Changes in SOD activity 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 SOD % inhibition
Control 3.33 ± 0.33
Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 3.33 ± 0.3#
Dim (40 mM) 33.33 ± 0.21*
Dim (40 mM)+ Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 15.59 ± 0.11#
Dim (60 mM) 36.66 ± 0.23*
Dim (60 mM)+ Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 24.00 ± 0.33#
Dim (100 mM) 44.44 ± 0.44*
Dim (100 mM)+ Quercetin (20 μg/ml) 33.33 ± 0.12#
  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 with quercetin (20 μg/ml). * p < 0.05, compared with controls (lymphocytes without Dimethoate).
