Table 3 Biochemical indicators of liver function in plasma in control (C) and high fat treated rats fed a diet with fresh soybean oil (FSO), oxidized soybean oil (OSO) and margarine (MG)

From: The intake of high fat diet with different trans fatty acid levels differentially induces oxidative stress and non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in rats

Plasma hepato specific enzymes (U/L)

  1. Data are expressed as means ± SD (n = 12 rats per group). C: controls group, FSO: Fresh soybean oil fed group, OSO: oxidized soybean oil fed group, MG: margarine fed group. Alkaline Phosphatase: ALP; Aspartate Transaminase: AST; Alanine Transaminase: ALT; lactate dehydrogenase: LDH
  2. Comparison between groups was made using Duncan's test. Different parameters values followed by different subscript letters (a, b and c) are significantly different between groups. (p < 0.05).
  3. *p < .05, OSO vs. FSO group; **p < .01, OSO vs. FSO group. +p < .05, MG vs OSO group; ++p < .05, MG vs. OSO group. Comparison between groups was made using unpaired Student test.
