Alleviative effects of histidine and carnosine in mice against ethanol-induced oxidative and inflammatory was examined. After chronic alcoholic liver injury was induced, histidine and carnosine at 0.5, 1, 2g/L were added to the drinking water for 3 weeks. Results showed that the post-intake of histidine or carnosine markedly decreased alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase activities (P<0.05). Ethanol treatment increased malondialdehyde (MDA) level, decreased glutathione (GSH… CONTINUE READING
