However, treatment with NC improved the hepatic marker enzyme levels toward normal, thus indicating hepatoprotective effects of NC against toxicity induced by CP.
ALDH, a cancer stem cell marker enzyme, causes the AldeRed reagent to fluoresce in the far-red spectrum, allowing the cells to be identified and isolated with concurrent use of green fluorescent cell lines, transgenic animals and reporter assays.
Endomembrane subfractions were also assayed for glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, a marker enzyme found in the endoplasmic reticulum, and for creatine kinase (14, 15).

Chronic administration of morphine caused significant elevation in the marker enzyme level in serum.
Injection of isoprenaline hydrochloride (100 mg/ kg B.Wt./day) to rats resulted in cardiac oxidative stress, inflammation, hyper-lipidemia and increase cardiac marker enzymes. Treatment of rats with GFAE (45 mg/kg/day) prior to injection of ISO provide significant cardio-protective effects evidenced by an obvious reduction in the level of cardiac marker enzymes, inflammatory factors and lipid contents with marked improvement in the cardiac antioxidant status and reduction of lipid peroxidation relative to untreated infarcted group.
