[Influence of ethanol and ethanol-induced lipid peroxidation on the steroidogenic activity of testicles].

[Article in Russian]


Chronic alcohol intoxication results in the diminished testosterone level and activation of lipid peroxidation in rat testes. A significant decrease in 3 beta-hydroxysteroid-hydrogenase and 17-dehydrogenase activity has been observed in microsomes. Analogous shifts have been evoked in vitro by the induction of lipid peroxidation in microsomes. That permitted one to suppose that alcohol-induced alterations in tests are partially mediated by induction of lipid peroxidation.
