Status of Antioxidant Enzymes and Mercury Levels Between Traditional Gold Miners and Non Miners
International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR)
Gold mining is traditionally processed by the method of amalgamation, that is a process using mercury to bind to gold. Mercury is free radical able to increase the Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), inhibit enzymes, interfere with the metabolism of the body antioxidants, especially superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx) . Low levels of antioxidant enzymes can be used as a parameter indicating that level of free radicals in the body is high. Low levels of antioxidant enzymes isdoi:10.21275/v5i1.28121501 fatcat:lplebc5iwvd3phm3p6lx6mtehu
