Effect of starvation and insulin-induced hypoglycemia on oxidative stress scavenger system and electron transport chain complexes from rat brain, liver, and kidney.


Considerable evidence suggests that oxidative stress plays an important role in tissue damage associated with hypoglycemia and other metabolic disorders. The altered brain neurotransmitters metabolism, cerebral electrolyte contents, and impaired blood-brain barrier function may contribute to CNS dysfunction in hypoglycemia. The present study elucidates the… (More)
