Abstract

The objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of four different vegetable oils [Red Palm Olefin (RPO), Palm Olefin (PO), Corn Oil (CO), Coconut Oil (COC)] on antioxidant enzymes activity of rat liver. Sixty six Sprague Dawley male rats which were randomly divided into eleven groups of 6 rats per group and were treated with 15% of RPO, PO, CO and COC for 4 and 8 weeks. Rats in the control group were given normal rat pellet only while in treated groups, 15% of additional different vegetable oils were given. After 4 weeks of treatment the Catalase (CAT) activity results showed that there was no significance difference (p≤0.05) between the control group and treated groups while after 8 weeks of treatment showed that there was no significant different (p≤0.05) between control group and RPO group but the treated rat liver with PO, CO and COC groups were the lowest and it were significantly lower (p≤0.05) than control group. For Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) there was no significance difference (p≤0.05) between the control group and treated groups of vegetable oils after 4 and 8 weeks of treatment. Thus the study indicated that there was no significant (p≤0.05) effect on antioxidant enzyme (superoxide dismutase) but there was significant effect (p≤0.05) on catalase in rat liver.
