Lycopene ameliorates oxidative stress in the aging chicken ovary via activation of Nrf2/HO-1 pathway

Figure 7. Schematic diagram summarizing the mechanisms underlying the attenuating effect of lycopene against ovarian oxidative stress during the aging process in chickens. The Nrf2/HO-1 pathway was down-regulated in the natural aging process in the laying hens. Lycopene attenuated the oxidative stress in aging ovaries via the activation of Nrf2/HO-1 pathway.
