Effect of graded doses of erythorbic acid on activities of drug metabolic enzyme and phosphatases in guinea pigs.


The enzyme activities which depended on the ascorbic acid (AsA) tissue levels were assayed to investigate the effect of erythorbic acid (ErA) administration on the AsA availability in the guinea pigs administered 5 mg of AsA/day or 1 mg of AsA/day.
