The exhalation of ethane is widely used as an indicator of in vivo lipid peroxidation. To test the hypothesis that lipid peroxidative events are involved in the toxicity of 2, 3, 7, 8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), we administered a lethal dose of TCDD (60 μg/kg), IP to male Sprague Dawley rats (160–180 g) and measured by gas chromatography the(More)
Ethane exhalation was increased in male Sprague-Dawley rats following a single intraperitoneal (IP) injection of Aroclor 1254 (500 mg/kg). In the first 2 weeks following Aroclor 1254 treatment, the increase in ethane exhalation was due to an inhibition of metabolism of endogenous ethane rather than to an increase in ethane production. In weeks 3 and 4(More)
