Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The chemiluminigenic probe lucigenin has been employed to detect the production of active oxygen species in suspensions of intact rat hepatocytes. Light emission from lucigenin arises from oxygenation by superoxide anion; hydrogen peroxide or a species derived from it may contribute to the reaction. The inhibitory action of antioxidants on the availability of active oxygen species produced by hepatocytes was tested. Propyl gallate was the most potent inhibitor, butylated hydroxyanisole and butylated hydroxytoluene were less active. The latter compounds cause an alteration of the cell membrane at high concentrations.
