|Title:||Inhibition of selenium dependent glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase in rats by diethyldithiocarbamate: Effect of pre-administration of -tocopherol|

Selenium dependent glutathione peroxidase
|Abstract:||Rats pre-administered with -tocopherol (10 mgs/day) for 7 days afforded a significant protection at the tissue level against the lowering of superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase, especially the selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase. The protective action of -tocopherol in the diethyldithiocarbamate treated rats may be attributed to its antioxidant/free radical scavenging action. It is concluded that selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase and -tocopherol act in a complementary fashion to block free radical formation.|
