Fluctuation of lipid peroxides and related enzyme activities at time of stroke in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats.
The levels of lipid peroxides, determined as thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), and the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), were examined in the blood from stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRSP), with and without cerebral lesions, and normotensive Wistar Kyoto (WK) rats. The levels of TBARS in the blood from healthy SHRSP were not significantly different from those of WK rats, while the values of SHRSP (male) with stroke were more than twice as high as those of healthy SHRSP. The activities of SOD and GSH-Px in stroke SHRSP were also statistically different from those of healthy SHRSP.
