The aim of this work was to provide basic data on the antioxidant defences in the annelid Eisenia fetida andrei (E. f. a.). Methods for measurement of three antioxidant enzymes-catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GPX), and glutathione reductase (GR)-and of glutathione-S-transferase (GST) were optimized. GPX activity differed according to the substrate used: cumene hydroperoxide (CUOOH) or hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The effects on the enzyme activities of storage up to 2 months at -80 degrees… CONTINUE READING
