Effects of Vitamin C and E on PCB (Aroclor 1254) induced oxidative stress, androgen binding protein and lactate in rat Sertoli cells.
Reprod Toxicol. 2004 Dec; 19(2):201-8.RT

Abstract

The effect of Aroclor 1254 and the ameliorative effect of Vitamin C and E on Sertoli cell function were studied in adult male rats. The rats were administered Aroclor 1254 at a dose of 2 mg/kg bw/day intraperitoneally for 30 days. One group of rats received Vitamin C (100 mg/kg bw/day) while the other group received Vitamin E (50 mg/kg bw/day) orally simultaneously with Aroclor 1254 for 30 days. Necropsy was performed at 24 h after the last injection. Sertoli cells were isolated for the estimation of enzymatic antioxidants superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), glutathione reductase (GST), and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (gamma-GT). Lipid peroxidation (LPO), hydrogen peroxide and hydroxyl radical were estimated. Sertoli cellular androgen binding protein (ABP) and lactate were also quantified. Whereas body weight, testis weight, relative weight of testis, ABP, lactate and specific activities of SOD, CAT, GPx, GR, GST, gamma-GT were all decreased, the levels of hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radical and LPO were significantly increased in the Sertoli cells of Aroclor 1254 treated rats. Simultaneous administration of Vitamin C or E restored these parameters to a normal range. Thus, the present study suggests that Aroclor 1254 exposure induces oxidative stress in rat Sertoli cells and furthermore that simultaneous administration of Vitamin C or E ameliorated these effects.
