Ethnopharmacological relevance: Acorn obtained from the Quercus brantii Lindl. (QB) tree has been used in Turkish folk medicine. Some studies have reported as an antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, gastroprotective, antitumoural of QB properties previously, however, its effect on the management of type diabetic 2 and oxidative stress complications is still unexplored. The aims of our study were the evaluation of the protective effect and antioxidant role of acorn lyophilized seed plant extract against STZ-induced diabetic complications as oxidative stress, hepatotoxicity and nephropathy, lipidemia and serum biomarkers of diabetes (SBD).
