Figure 4: Effect of exogenous supplementation of l-cysteine (Cys) along with adsorbed ascites fluid (ad-AF) treatment on the alteration of the activities of hepatic glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT) and glutamate pyruvate transaminase (GPT) enzymes of tumor bearers and treated mice. Animals in each group were transplanted with 1×106 Ehrlich’s ascites tumor cells intraperitoneally (i.p.); Group-I (tumor control) was administered 0.1mL of normal saline, Group-II (tumor experimental) was treated with 0.1mL of ad-AF), whereas Group-III (tumor experimental + Cys) received 0.1mL of ad-AF and Cys (0.1mL) i.p. on alternate days right from the day of tumor transplantation (day 0). Animals were killed by cervical dislocation on day 18 post-tumor transplantation. Activities of GOT and GPT in liver homogenate were measured. First group of bars represent the GOT activity, whereas second group of bars represent GPT activity. Values presented here are mean ± standard error (SE) of five animals in each group. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.005
