Effect of diet and topiramate on oxidative stress. Changes in 4- hydroxynonenal (HNE, a), 3-nitrotyrosine (3-NT, b), and protein carbonyls (c) levels in mouse brain homogenates from LF- and HF-fed CD-1 mice treated with or without TPM. HF diet led to a significant increase in HNE and 3-NT compared to LF controls. These increases were attenuated with TPM treatment. HF diet had no effect on protein carbonyls. The image in d is representative of the slot blot data used to collect these values. Values are expressed as arbitrary units, mean ± SD. Significance was determined by a one-way analysis of variance followed by Newman–Keuls post-test for HF vs. LF, LF vs. LF TPM, and HF vs. HF TPM. *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01
