Abstract: Bilateral castration increased lipid peroxidation and consequently reduced glutathione in both liver and kidney. Testosterone administration reduced lipid peroxidation in the liver of castrated and benzene treated rats, however, reduced glutathione status could not be restored. Benzene depleted CYP4502E1 in castrated rats, however, the enzyme was restored in liver and kidney both after testosterone treatment. The results suggest that testosterone affects the metabolism and disposition of benzene by influencing CYP4502E1. Other hormonal and cellular/molecular factors may also alter the actions of testosterone. Testosterone dependent mechanism of toxicity of benzene in the liver and kidney has been discussed.
