Diabetes is associated with a hypercoagulable state. In this study, we investigated the potential effects of alloxan-induced diabetes on the activities of the enzymes NTPDase (E.C. 3.6.1.5, apyrase, ATP diphosphohydrolase, ecto/CD39) and 5'-nucleotidase (E.C. 3.1.3.5, CD73) that can control the levels of ADP and adenosine, two substances that regulates(More)
The activity of the enzymes NTPDase and 5′-nucleotidase was studied in both diabetes mellitus and an associated model of iron-overload. Rats were divided in five groups: citrate (CC), saline (S), diabetic (D), iron-overload (IO), and diabetic iron-overload (DIO). Diabetes was induced with alloxan (150 mg/kg), and iron-overload was induced with iron-dextran(More)
