Fig. 1.

MDA content in the fat bodies of A. pernyi exposed to different concentration of uranyl acetate. The values represent mean±SE (n=3). For each experiment, samples were analyzed in triplicate. (0, Control; 1, 6.25 mM; 2, 12.5 mM; 3, 25 mM.).

Fig. 2.

Activity of super oxide dismutase in the fat bodies of A. pernyi exposed to different concentration of uranyl acetate. The values represent mean±SE (n=3). For each experiment, samples were analyzed in triplicate. (0: Control; 1: 6.25 mM; 2: 12.5 mM; 3: 25 mM.).

Fig. 3.

Content of reduced glutathione (GSH) in the fat bodies of A. pernyi exposed to different concentration of uranyl acetate. The values represent mean±SE (n=3). For each experiment, samples were analyzed in triplicate. (0: Control;1: 6.25 mM; 2: 12.5 mM; 3: 25 mM.)

Fig. 4.

Activity of catalase in the fat bodies of A. pernyi exposed to different concentration of uranyl acetate. The values represent mean±SE (n=3). For each experiment, samples were analyzed in triplicate. (0: Control; 1: 6.25 mM; 2: 12.5 mM; 3: 25 mM.).

Fig. 5.

Raletive expression of super oxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), glutathione S-transferase(GST) and Glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) gene in the fatbodies of A. pernyi exposed to 6.25 mM uranyl acetate for 4 h. The values represent mean±SE (n=3). For each experiment, samples were analyzed in triplicate.
