Abstract:
Administration of erucin (3 and 15 mg/kg) and sulforaphane (15 mg/kg) to rats for 10 days enhanced hepatic and pulmonary quinone reductase activity; sulforaphane also stimulated hepatic glutathione S-transferase, when monitored using 4-chloro-7-nitrobenzofurazan. Immunologically, both compounds increased the expression of hepatic and pulmonary glutathione S-transferases class a and u, but not n, proteins.
