Inhibition by estrogens of the oxidant-mediated mobilization of arachidonic acid in hepatocytes.


Oxidative stress is associated with alterations in arachidonic acid (AA) metabolism. The present work was performed to assess the effect of the oxidant tert-butyl hydroperoxide on the release of AA from rat hepatocytes, and the possible preventive actions of estrogens on this effect. The exposure of [14C]-prelabeled cells to tertbutyl hydroperoxide produced… (More)
