From: Comparison of the antibacterial properties of phycocyanin and its SNPs and their effects on rat blood cells and liver enzymes

Parameter PC-AgNp PC Normal control
AST (U/L) 226 ± 5.1* 285 ± 6.9* 152 ± 5.1
ALT(U/L) 276 ± 12* 225 ± 4.9* 165 ± 0.4
ALK(U/L) 1023 ± 205* 1182 ± 115* 1511 ± 325
  1. AST, aspartate amino transfrase; ALT, alanin amino transfrase; ALK, alkalin phospatase
  2. *Values are expressed as mean ± standard error of mean (p < 0.05), n = 5 rats in each group
