Both ascorbic acid content and SDH activity of kidney reached peak levels during sexual maturity and then declined. Starvation stress (21 days) induced low levels of ascorbic acid content and SDH activity of the kidney. Nocturnal levels of ascorbic acid content and SDH activity were significantly lower than the diurnal values.
