The effect of thiol antidotes 2,3-dimercapto-1-propanesulfonic acid (DMPS) and D-penicillamine (PA) on lipid peroxidation and on activities of some protecting enzymes in blood, liver and kidneys of mercury-poisoned rats has been studied. It has been found that Hg-poisoning is associated with increased lipid peroxidation in the liver and in the kidneys and(More)
The activities of superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase, and the level of reduced glutathione, were measured in heavy metal-treated erythrocytes. The hemolytic metals were found to significantly deactivate both catalase and glutathione peroxidase and to decrease the level of reduced glutathione, thus providing suitable conditions for the(More)
2-3-dimercapto-1-propane sulfonic acid, D-penicillamine and meso-dimercapto succinic acid, drugs widely applied as antidota against metal poisoning, and cysteine and glutathione were studied with respect to their ability to generate and to scavenge superoxide anion radical. Superoxide production and scavenging were tested by means of luminol-dependent(More)
Using the chemiluminescence technique to assay the activity of cholesterol oxidase it has been shown that enzymic oxidation of cholesterol to cholest-4-en-3-one red cell membranes is accompanied by accumulation of lipid peroxidation products--malonyl dialdehyde (MDA). The amount of MDA formed was dependent on the amount of cholesterol oxidized. The free(More)
