Rat hippocampal activities of Cu, Zn-superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1), catalase (CAT), and glutathione peroxidase (GPx). * Indicates a significant difference between the control and dimethylmercury (MeHg) groups or between the Dendropanax morbifera leaf extract (DML) and DML-MeHg groups (p < 0.05); # indicates a significant difference between the control and DML or between the MeHg and DML-MeHg groups (p < 0.05; n = 7 per group). The activities of SOD1, CAT, and GPx are significantly decreased in the MeHg group, but DML administration significantly attenuates these effects. The data represent means ± standard error of the mean (SEM)
