The antioxidant potential of melatonin (MLT) on hyperammonemia (induced by ammonium acetate treatment) were studied in rats. The levels of circulatory ammonia, urea and non-protein nitrogen increased significantly in ammonium acetate treated rats and decreased significantly in rats treated with melatonin and ammonium acetate. In brain tissues, the same pattern of alterations across groups was observed in the levels of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances and lipid profile variables (free… CONTINUE READING
