31P and 1H NMR spectroscopic studies of liver extracts of carbon tetrachloride-treated rats

Harvey, Peta; Gready, Jill; Hickey, Haruyo; Le Couteur, D; McLean, Allan J


NMR spectroscopy was used to examine hepatic metabolism in cirrhosis with a particular focus on markers of functional cellular hypoxia. 31P and 1H NMR spectra were obtained from liver extracts from control rats and from rats with carbon tetrachloride-induced cirrhosis. A decrease of 34% in total phosphorus content was observed in cirrhotic rats, parallelling a reduction of 40% in hepatocyte mass as determined by morphometric analysis. Hypoxia appeared to be present in cirrhotic rats, as...[Show more]
