In vivo, an organic peroxide, methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP) damaged microsomal cytochrome P-450 and cytochrome P-450 peroxidase in vitamin E deficient rat livers. Dietary vitamin E protected the microsomal enzymes from MEKP damage. Phenobarbital induced liver cytochrome P-450 peroxidase and glutation S-transferase and decreased MEKP damage on… CONTINUE READING
