Table2: Effect of Diphenyl Diselenide (DPDS) and Diphenyl Ditelluride (DPDT) on TBARS production in rat’s brain preparation. TBARS are expressed as nmol of MDA/g of tissue. Data are presented as mean ± S.E.M. (n = 5). Asterisk presents the significant effect of SNP while different letters represent significant effect of the tested compounds.
