The activities of hepatic mitochondrial enzymes such as isocitrate dehydrogenase (ICH) a-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase (KDH) succinate dehydrogenase (SH) malate dehydrogenase (MDH) NADPH dehydrogenase and cytochrome C oxidase were significantly decreased in CCl4- hepatotoxic rats and administration of corosolic acid brought back these parameters towards normal.
NADPH dehydrogenase reduces MetHb only in the presence of an exogenous catalyzing agent such as methylene blue and is not responsible for endogenous MetHb reduction (Fig.
The NADPH dehydrogenase in this individual was clearly functional as evidenced by his response to methylene blue.
