Table 1 Enzymes indicating hepatic integrity: AST, ALT and alkaline phosphatase.

From: Hepatic oxidative stress in an animal model of sleep apnoea: effects of different duration of exposure

Enzymes SIH IH-21 IH-35
AST (U/L) 124.4 ± 6.5 94.36 ± 7.05 145.8 ± 7.2a
ALT (U/L) 45.5 ± 4.0 48.50 ± 2.85 55.6 ± 1.3b
AP (U/L) 97.7 ± 3.1 84.25 ± 1.98 122.6 ± 2.4c
  1. Data are presented as mean ± standard error (n = 12 animals/group). a IH-35 vs SIH, p = 0,04; b IH-35 vs SIH, p = 0,03; c IH-35 vs SIH, p < 0,0001. SIH: sham intermittent hypoxia group; IH-21: intermittent hypoxia for 21 days; IH-35: intermittent hypoxia for 35 days; AST: aspartate aminotransferase; ALT: alanine aminotransferase; ALP: alkaline phosphatase.
