Ethanol-induced changes in the content of thiol compounds and of lipid peroxidation in livers and brains from mice: protection by thiazolidine derivatives.


Treatment of mice with ethanol for 5 days resulted in a drop of total glutathione in the liver, possibly due to an ethanol-stimulated increased conversion into L-cysteine. The levels of L-cysteine and the rate of lipid peroxidation were above control levels. Similar but less pronounced changes were observed with brain tissue. The continuation of the… (More)
