The role of acrolein in allyl alcohol-induced lipid peroxidation and liver cell damage in mice.

Male NMRI mice were fed a sucrose diet for 48 hr in order to reduce the hepatic glutathione content and to level off its diurnal variation. After administration of allyl alcohol (AA: 1.1 mmol/kg), hepatic glutathione (24.3 +/- 7.0 nmol GSH/mg protein) was almost totally lost within the first 15 min (less than 0.5 nmol GSH/mg protein). Subsequently, a… CONTINUE READING
