50) was found to be 20 mM of ethanol treated with rotenone (10 M) for 2 h. Treatment of ethanol with rotenone (20 mM10 M) caused increase in lipid peroxidation, increase of lactate dehydrogenase and decrease in reduced glutathione content. Reduced glutathione and a-tocopherol, alone and in combination, were added to hepatocyte suspension in an attempt to protect cells against alcohol induced cell damage. Pretreatment with reduced glutathione and vitamin E independently, increased the cell viability to 78.97 and 70.42%, respectively, but a combination of reduced glutathione and vitamin E increased cell viability to 92.12%. Vitamin E reduced lipid peroxidation by 41.32% but in combination with reduced glutathione decreased lipid peroxidation by 61.15%. The results suggest an interaction between GSH and Vitamin E in protecting ethanol induced hepatocytes damage.]]>
