Antioxidant system and nitrogen metabolism in rabbits’ blood under action of chromium chloride

  • R. Y. Iskra Institute of Animal Biology NAAS, Lviv

Abstract

The effect of chromium chloride (Cr3+, 200 µg/kg of the combined feed) on the state of rabbits antioxidant system and amino transferases activity was studied. It was found that chromium entailed the increase of activity of catalase, glutathione peroxidase and the content of reduced glutathione in the animals’ blood. It was established that the activity of aspartate amino transferase in the exposured rabbits’ blood is greater than in the animals of control group.
