Protection against acute paraquat toxicity by dietary selenium in the chick.

Abstract

Experiments were conducted to determine whether both dietary vitamin E and selenium (Se) affect the acute toxicity of paraquat in the chick. Paraquat significantly stimulated the rate of NADPH-supported consumption of oxygen by the microsomal fractions of chick liver and lung, and this stimulation was decreased by addition of superoxide dismutase and/or… (More)
