Methacrylonitrile induced oxidative stress in rat liver.


PMID 9594437

Abstract

MeAN administration (40mg/kg body wt/day (i.e. 1/5 of LD50) resulted in increased levels of lipid peroxidation products, conjugated dienes and lipofuscin-like substances in rat liver. Significant decrease in GSH and a decreased activity of hepatic SOD, CAT and GPx were observed. There was also an increase in glutathione S-transferase and G6PD activities, decreased plasma ceruloplasmin and vitamin C implying oxidative stress caused by MeAN.
