Vitamin C affects the antioxidative/oxidative status in rats irradiated with ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) light
Journal of Animal and Feed Sciences
Four groups of twenty growing Wistar rats were irradiated with either UV, IR , UV+IR light or were not irradiated (control). Ten rats from each group received a diet supplemented with 0.6% of L-ascorbic acid. The effects of the mega-dose of vitamin C were evaluated by changes in the antioxidative/oxidative status. UV and IR radiation promoted oxidative DNA degradation in rat livers and supplementation with ascorbic acid strengthened the prooxidative effects on DNA oxidation in rats irradiateddoi:10.22358/jafs/70147/2006 fatcat:yalvyveimfhalmif75o4cbsjkq
