Catalase is needed to avoid tissue peroxidation in Rana perezi in normoxia.

1. In order to clarify the relative role of catalase (CAT) and glutathione peroxidases (GSH-Px) at normal and high O2 tensions, Rana perezi frogs were chronically treated with aminotriazole (AT), hyperoxia, or both. 2. A 100% survival was observed with both treatments. Hyperoxia increased liver catalase and kidney TBA-RS and decreased GSH-Px. 3. AT caused… CONTINUE READING
