The effect of hydrazine on liver and serum lipids of normal and adrenalectomized rats
B Haghighi, A Boroumand, O Behmanesh
1. Normal and adrenalectomized fasted rats were injected with either hydrazine (0.7 and 1 mMol/ kg) or 0.15 M Nacl and changes in the serum and liver lipids were measured during48 h.
2. in the normal rats hydrazine increased triacylglycerol cholestrol esters and phospholipids for the 1st 24 h. Free cholesterol showed only slight elevation at48 h. In serum, triacylglycerol rose above control levels at 24 h, phospholids elevated up to 48 h, cholestryl esters decreased for 24 hand then rose at 48 h and free cholestrol did not change.
3. Hydrazine in adrenalectomized rats (0.7 mMol /kg) did not cause significant changes in their serum and liver lipids.
