  author={Antoaneta M. Zheleva and Veselina Georgieva Gadjeva and S. S. Popova},
Alpha amanitin and phalloidin are powerful hepatotoxins that belong to the main classes of toxins namely, amatoxins and phallotoxins, isolated from the deadly poisonous mushroom Amanita phalloides. It is well known that disruptions of antioxidant enzyme defense that include superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, glutathione peroxidase lead to generation of reactive oxygen species, followed by increase in the products of lipid peroxidation. Our previous studies showed that alpha amanitin and… CONTINUE READING
