Sarkar, S and Yadav, P and Bhatnagar, D (1998) Influence of cadmium on lipid peroxidation and antioxidant enzymes in isolated rat hepatocytes. In: Fresenius Environmental Bulletin, 7 (1-2). pp. 28-33.Full text not available from this repository.
Cadmium (Cd) influences lipid peroxidation (LPO) by enhancing peroxidation of membrane lipids and by disturbing the antioxidant system of cells. In isolated rat hepatocytes, LPO was observed in cells incubated with Cd (50-250 mu M) for various time periods up to 90 min. The antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) were inhibited along with depletion of glutathione (GSH) in hepatocytes treated with Cd. The results show that Cd influences LPO in rat hepatocytes due to decrease in antioxidant status.
