D-galactosamine induced changes in rat liver plasma membranes lipid composition and some enzyme activities

The International Journal of Biochemistry

Abstract

The influence of D-galactosamine administration on rat liver plasma membranes lipid composition, fluidity and some enzyme activities was investigated. D-Galactosamine was found to induce an increase of the total phospholipids, the cholesterol level and membrane rigidity. In liver plasma membranes of D-galactosamine-treated rats the exogenous phospholipase A2 activity was enhanced about 2 fold, whereas the endogenous activity was slightly decreased. No alteration of the neutral sphingomyelinase activity was observed.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
