The in vitro effects of cigarette smoke on catalase activity were investigated in biological preparations from rat liver and brain using a polarographic method. In both cases cigarette smoke solutions showed a potent ability to inhibit catalase activity with a slight time dependency. The reversibility of their inhibitory activity was demonstrated by in vitro dialysis tests. The catalase inhibitory compound(s) are formed in the smoking process, are not extracted with organic solvents and appear… CONTINUE READING
