  1. a Differential gene expressions after 1 month feeding with fish-containing diets. Three independent determinations per sample were carried out. The numbers are indicating the significant differential gene expressions. =: identical to control.
  2. Bax: Bcl2-associated X protein; Cox I: cytochrome c oxidase subunit I; fos: FBJ osteosarcoma oncogene; Gsta4: glutathione S-transferase, alpha 4; Mt1: metallothionein isoform 1; Mt2: metallothionein isoform 2; Sod2: mitochondrial superoxide dismutase; Sod3: extracellular superoxide dismutase.
