dc.description.abstractThe activity of antioxidant defense (AD) enzymes-superoxide dismutase (SOD, EC, catalase (CAT, EC, glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px, EC, glutathione-S-transferase (GST, EC, glutathione reductase (GR, EC and glutathione (GSH) content of the anemic Belgrade (b/b) laboratory rats-were measured and analyzed in liver, spleen, lung, heart, brain and testes in comparison with nonanemic controls. The activities of hepatic Mn SOD, CAT, GSH-Px and GST (P < 0.02, P < 0.01 and P < 0.005) were decreased in anemic, comparing with nonanemic animals, whereas the spleen CuZn SOD, Mn SOD, CAT and GSH-Px (P < 0.005, P < 0.02, P < 0.005 and P < 0.01) activities were increased. In the lung of anemic rats, Mn SOD, GSH-Px and GR (P < 0.005, P < 0.01, P < 0.05) activities were higher, whereas GST (P < 0.01) activity was lower in relation to nonanemic ones. In anemic rats, heart Mn SOD (P < 0.05) activity was increased, brain GSH-Px (P < 0.005) activity was lower, whereas GR (P < 0.02) activity was higher compared with nonanemic controls. CuZn SOD (P < 0.05) activity in the testes was elevated and GSH-Px (P < 0.05) reduced in anemic animals. GSH content was decreased in the liver (P < 0.01), lung and brain (P < 0.005) and increased in the spleen (P < 0.02) of anemic rats in relation to the controls. Our data suggest phenotype specific differences in the AD system of the Belgrade (b/b) rat tissues in comparison with nonanemic controls. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Inc.en
