Comparative studies on the effect of butylated hydroxyanisole on glutathione and glutathione S-transferases in the tissues of male and female CD-1 mice.


1. Male CD-1 mice had about 1.6-fold higher glutathione (GSH), 2-fold higher glutathione S-transferase (GST) activity and 2.8-fold higher GST protein in their livers as compared to the female mice. 2. When mice were fed a diet containing 0.75% BHA for 2 weeks, a 1.8-fold increase was observed in GSH levels of female mice liver as opposed to only 1.2-fold… (More)
