Abstract
Activities of modulator-dependent protein kinases (M-PK) and protamine-dependent protein kinase(s) (P-PK) increased in the lungs of mice after 6 days i.p. injections of butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT). Greater changes in the activity of lung enzymes occurred as the animals aged. These included: decreased basal, M-PK and P-PK activities in control and BHT-treated animals, and decreased ratio of BHT/control in basal enzyme activity and increased ratios in both M-PK and P-PK activities.
