From: Low H2O2 and enhanced oxidative resistance in the diapause-destined pupa of silkworm, Antheraea mylitta (Lepidoptera:Saturniidae) suggest their possible involvement in dormancy and lifespan extension

a-c Activities of antioxidant enzymes. Activities of SOD (a) (units/ mg protein), CAT (b) (pkat/mg protein) and GST (c) (nmol CDNB conjugate formed/min/mg protein) in the hemolymph (HL) and fat body (FB) of the pupae from nondiapausing (NDP) and diapausing (DP) generations. Bar represents mean ± S.E.M. (n = 6). Bars having different lower and upper case letters indicate significant difference in the measured parameters in HL and FB, respectively. ND:Not detected. Differences in the mean value have been considered statistically significant with a confidence interval of 95% and significant level of 5%
