Twenty four adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were administered sodium matavanadate (2.5 mg/kg body wt) for 7 consecutive days by intraperitoneal route. Results revealed significant diminution in the levels of phospholipids, cholesterol and cerebrosides, but significant increment in ??????? contents in rat liver following vanadium treatment. Occurence of lipid peroxidation was also accelerated. These studies have implicated that vanadium-induced stimulation of lipid peroxidation was the event leading to oxidative degradation of lipids in rat liver. However, ???????? of gangliosides led to their increment.
