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-b Non-enzymatic antioxidants. Content of GSH (a) in the hemolymph (HL) (μmol/ml) and fat body (FB) (μmol/g tissue wet wt.); and ascorbic acid (b) in the HL (μg/ml) and FB (μg/g tissue wet wt.) of 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. Differences in the mean value have been considered statistically significant with a confidence interval of 95% and significant level of 5%
