Effect of endotoxin on rat serum, lung and liver lipid peroxidation and on tissue metallothionein levels.


The effect of endotoxin on serum and lung and liver lipid peroxidation, as measured by thiobarbituric acid reactants (TBARs), as well as on lung and liver metallothionein (MT) has been studied in the rat. Endotoxin consistently increased serum and liver TBARs in a time-response manner. The increase in the serum preceded that in the liver, with peaks 3-6 h… (More)
