Erythrocytes are a convenient model to understand oxidative damage to the membranes induced by various xenobiotics. The objective of the present study was to investigate the propensity of atrazine to induce oxidative stress and its possible attenuation by vitamin E. Experimental animals were orally administered atrazine (300 mg kg(-1) body weight, daily) and vitamin E (100 mg kg(-1) body weight, daily) for a period of 7, 14, and 21 days. Erythrocyte membranes were prepared and analyzed for… CONTINUE READING
