Isolated rat hepatocytes, treated with CCl4 or ADP-Fe3+ complex show an enhanced lipid peroxidation and a decreased glucose 6-phosphatase activity. Lipid peroxidation is much more stimulated by ADP-Fe3+ or Fe3+ than by CCl4, when the metal and the haloalkane are used at a similar concentration. Increasing rates of lipid peroxidation in the different experimental conditions do not correlate with the degree of glucose 6-phosphatase inactivation, which is produced by CCl4 and not by a similar amount of ferric iron. In the case of iron, its intracellular concentration must be higher to give the enzyme inactivation exerted by CCl4. Higher intracellular levels of iron are reached when the metal is added to the cell suspension together with ADP. Under these conditions there is inactivation of glucose 6-phosphatase. Possible mechanisms accounting for a different enzyme sensitivity to iron and CCl4 are discussed.

Biochemical evidence for chemical and/or topographic differences in the lipoperoxidative processes induced by CCl4 and iron.

Abstract

Isolated rat hepatocytes, treated with CCl4 or ADP-Fe3+ complex show an enhanced lipid peroxidation and a decreased glucose 6-phosphatase activity. Lipid peroxidation is much more stimulated by ADP-Fe3+ or Fe3+ than by CCl4, when the metal and the haloalkane are used at a similar concentration. Increasing rates of lipid peroxidation in the different experimental conditions do not correlate with the degree of glucose 6-phosphatase inactivation, which is produced by CCl4 and not by a similar amount of ferric iron. In the case of iron, its intracellular concentration must be higher to give the enzyme inactivation exerted by CCl4. Higher intracellular levels of iron are reached when the metal is added to the cell suspension together with ADP. Under these conditions there is inactivation of glucose 6-phosphatase. Possible mechanisms accounting for a different enzyme sensitivity to iron and CCl4 are discussed.
