From: Alpha-mangostin from mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana Linn.) pericarp extract reduces high fat-diet induced hepatic steatosis in rats by regulating mitochondria function and apoptosis

GSH: glutathione; GPx: glutathione peroxidase; GRd: glutathione reductase; SOD: superoxide dismutase; CAT: catalase. HFD: high fat diet; MGE: HFD supplemented 25 mg/day mangosteen extract diet (*P < 0.05 versus control ; # P < 0.05 versus HFD)
