Decreased antioxidant defense mechanisms in rat liver after methanol intoxication.

Abstract

The primary metabolic fate of methanol is oxidation to formaldehyde and then to formate by enzymes of the liver. Cytochrome P-450 and a role for the hydroxyl radical have been implicated in this process. The aim of the paper was to study the liver antioxidant defense system in methanol intoxication, in doses of 1.5, 3.0 and 6.0 g/kg b.w., after methanol… (More)
