Interaction Information:

Comment Some lens parameters, including glycated proteins, advanced glycation end products (AGEs), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and aldose reductase (AR) activities, were increased while some others, including soluble and total protein, glutathione (GSH) level, and catalase (CAT) activity, were decreased due to diabetes induction. After Gly treatment, all the above-named parameters had reverse changes except for the CAT activity.
