Relationship between lipid peroxidation, fatty acid composition, and ascorbic acid in the liver during carbohydrate and caloric restriction in mice

, : Relationship between lipid peroxidation, fatty acid composition, and ascorbic acid in the liver during carbohydrate and caloric restriction in mice. Archives of Biochemistry & Biophysics 306(1): 59-64

Growing OF1 mice were treated on a short-term basis with ad libitum, caloric-restricted, or carbohydrate-restricted diets, maintaining the same intake of vitamins and minerals in the three groups. Caloric intake was 60% of controls both in the caloric-restricted and in the carbohydrate-restricted groups. Neither global nor carbohydrate restriction changed liver superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase, cytochrome oxidase, GSH, uric acid, or malondialdehyde (HPLC). Ascorbate was decreased in both restricted groups. Carbohydrate restriction, but not caloric restriction, increased unsaturation indexes of fatty acids in all lipid classes analyzed and increased sensitivity to peroxidation by one order of magnitude. It is concluded that short-term caloric restriction does not seem to increase antioxidants and decrease peroxidation in the mouse liver whereas long-term restriction can avoid decreases of antioxidants and increases of peroxidation during aging. Our experiments support the prevailing view that the caloric restriction phenomenon is due to a reduction in calories themselves instead of to a reduction in carbohydrates. This last manipulation strongly increases sensitivity to peroxidative damage in the liver. The results show that in vivo fatty acid unsaturation is a main factor in determining the sensitivity to lipid peroxidation.

A field experiment was carried out during 2000 and 2001 in Kargil, Jammu and Kashmir, India, to investigate the effect of seed size (medium (25-50 g), big (50-75 g) and large (75-100 g)) and intrarow spacing (20, 25 and 30 cm) on the yield of pota...
