Since hyperglycemia-mediated oxidative stress seems to be the main cause of diabetic complications 2930an ideal antidiabetic drug should combine both hypoglycemic and antioxidant properties. Oxidative stress influences the pathogenesis of DN not only through overproduction of ROS but also through the reduction of antioxidant enzyme activities, the formation of lipid peroxides, and non-enzymatic protein glycosylation. Weinheim Verlag Chemie; The hard outer coverings of seeds were removed.

Attenuation of renal dysfunction by anti-hyperglycemic compound isolated from fruit pulp of Eugenia jambolana in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. In addition, GPx is engaged in diminution of highly esnete products like lipid-peroxides and other organic hydroperoxides.

This may be due to enlargement of tubular cell lining, fatty infiltration, large hemorrhagic area, and lymphocyte infiltration in hyperglycemic rats Enzymatic and non-enzymatic Antioxidants The antioxidant enzymes in kidney homogenate were evaluated by standard procedures 22 – Fruit oblong; seeds few, subglobose, black.

Composition and enzyme inhibitory properties of finger millet Eleusine coracana L. Procedure for blood glutathione peroxidase determination in cattle and swine.

STZ induced diabetes triggered a significant damage in renal structure showing glomeruli and tubular damages, mesangial expansion due probably to the generation of reactive radicals and to subsequent lipid peroxidation. The blood glucose levels in the diabetic group were significantly increased in comparison to the controls.
