Superoxide dismutase activity in rat brain during acute and chronic alcohol intoxication

Abstract

The effect of acute and chronic ethanol administration on rat brain superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity was studied. Intraperitoneal injections of ethanol led to an inhibition of SOD activity. When ethanol was fed as the sole fluid, the SOD activity decreased progressively, reaching a plateau after 6 weeks of treatment. Withdrawal of ethanol produced a… (More)
