Role of Aldehyde Dehydrogenase (ALDH) in the Detoxication of Cyclophosphamide (CP) in Rat Embryos
The carbonyl compound 4-hydroxynonenal is one of the major and most toxic products of the oxidative lipid breakdown of biological membranes. Its formation has been quantified in rat liver homogenates, microsomes and whole parenchymal cells under various conditions of enhanced lipid peroxidation (Benedetti, et al., 1980; Esterbauer, et al., 1982; Poli, et al., 1985,1986).
