  1. Values represent the means ± SEM. n = 7 animals for each group. CD: control; FRD: fructose-fed rats; SOD: superoxide dismutase; GSH-Px: glutathione peroxidase; GSH-Rd: glutathione reductase; TBARS: thiobarbituric acid reactive species; NOx: nitrates plus nitrites; GSH+GSSG: total content of glutathione in PVAT.
