Abstract

Accumulation of primary and secondary lipid peroxidation (LPO) products were investigated by ultraviolet spectrophotometry and fluorescence of Schiff bases in various tissues of Wistar rats subjected to painful emotional stress (PES). The quantity of LPO products was shown to increase under the influence of PES mainly in the heart, and also significantly, although to a lesser degree than in the heart, in skeletal muscles and brain. The increase in content of hydroperoxides in all the organs studied was smaller than the increase in the content of fluorescent Schiff bases, the end products of LPO.
