4.2.3.5. Antioxidant assays in gastric tissue homogenate
4.2.3.5.1. Catalase activity
Catalase activity in the gastric tissue was measured according to the procedures of Sinha (1972). One ml of homogenate solution was taken and mixed with 5 ml of phosphate buffer of pH 7.4. To this 4 ml of 0.2 M H2O2 was added and time noted. Exactly after 180 seconds of adding H2O2, a set of 1ml of reaction mixture from the above was taken and 2 ml dichromate acetic acid was added. It was then kept in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. All the tubes were then cooled under running tap water and finally readings were taken at 570 nm against reagent blank. The catalase activity in gastric tissue was expressed as µmoles H2O2 consumed /mg protein /min. 4.2.3.5.2. Glutathione peroxidase activity
Estimation of glutathione peroxidase was made according to the methodology of Flohe and Gunzler, 1984. Took 0.2 ml of EDTA, sodium azide, reduced glutathione and H2O2 in a test tube. Then added 0.4 ml of Sodium Phosphate buffer of pH 7 and 0.2 ml of

(1979). Pipetted out 0.1ml of gastric tissue homogenate, 0.2 ml of 8.1% sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), 1.5 ml of 20% acetic acid solution and 1.5 ml of 0.8% aqueous solution of TBA into suitably labeled test tubes. The reaction mixture was then made up to 4.0 ml with distilled water and heated at 95°C for 60 min in water bath. After cooling the test tubes under tap water, 1.0 ml of distilled water and 5.0 ml of the mixture of n-butanol and pyridine (15: 1, v/v) was added and shaken vigorously. Centrifuged the test tubes at 4000 rpm for 10 minutes and the absorbance of the upper layer were measured at 532 nm. Standard malondialdehyde was taken as the standard and was processed in the same manner. The level of lipid peroxide was expressed as µmoles of MDA formed /g wet

    A stir bar was added into the flask containing isoborneol, and the flask was attached to a ring stand to rest on top of a magnetic stirrer device. In consistent drops, 0.63 mL of glacial acetic was added and the reaction had a pH of 2, which was measured with pH indicator paper. Then, 0.50 mL of 10% w/v sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) solution was added, and the reagents were reacted for three minutes. Shortly after, 5.13 mL of 10% w/v NaOCl was added incrementally with a Pasteur pipet for about ten minutes. A thermocouple was periodically placed on the outside of the flask to make sure that the mixture did not reach past 50 °C.…

    The ter-polymerization solution was left for 24 hr at room temperature to complete the polycondensation reaction. Ammonia solution, 10 mL of 33 % NH4OH diluted by 20 mL of distilled water, was added drop wisely until a deep brown precipitate was produced. The filtered precipitate (EB) was washed with sufficient amount of deionized water then washed by ethanol to remove residual oxidant, unreacted monomer and oligomer until the filtrate became colorless and oven dried at 60 °C for overnight. The deep brown dried powder produces PANI-AA-o-PDA (PAAAPDAK1). The gained terpolymer yield was calculated to be 88.3 % utilizing the subsequent compatible…

    The amount of peroxide was calculated, using the following equation (Harold, Kirk, and Swayer 1981). PV = (1000 (푉1-푉2) 푁) / V1 V1: volume of sodium thiosulfate solution, V2 volume of sodium thiosulfate, W: weight, N: normality of sodium thiosulfate solution TBA Measurement 0.2 g of fat was mixed with 1 mL of BHT and 35 mL of C2HCl3O2. Then 100 mL of distilled water was added, 50 mL of distilled samples was collected to mix with 5 mL of TBA, and was placed for 1 hour in the water bath. The absorbance of the samples was measured at 532 nm, using a spectrophotometer (Pikul, Leszczynski, and Kummerow 1989). TBA value = (Asample−Ablank)×50/200 PH…

    The ferric-TPTZ reagent was prepared by mixing 300 mM acetate buffer, pH 3.6, 10 mM TPTZ in 40 mM HCl and 20 mM FeCl3.6H2O in the ratio of 10:1:1 (v/v/v). The FRAP reagent was freshly prepared before each experiment. Briefly, 60 µL of different concentrations of the reference standard or the sample extractwere mixed with 1000 µL FRAP reagent and incubated at 37oC for the duration of the reaction. The absorbance readings were taken at 593 nm at 30 min. Increasing absorbance of the reaction mixture indicates an increase of reduction capability.…
