  1. Values represent mean ± SD; n = 10 in healthy control birds (5 males and 5 females), n = 10 in Mycoplasma-infected birds (5 males and 5 females); * = p < 0.05, ** = p < 0.01. CAT = catalase (μmol H2O2/min/mg protein), GST = glutathione-S-transferase (μkat/g), GSH = reduced glutathione (μmol/g), GR = glutathione reductase (μkat/g), TBARS = total thiobarbituric acid reactive species (μmol/g), FRAP = ferric reducing antioxidant power assay (μmol/g).
