Activity of isocitrate dehydrogenase, a-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase, malate dehydrogenase, and the NAD+/NADН ratio were studied in the liver mitochondrial fraction of rats with toxic hepatitis induced by acetaminophen under conditions of alimentary protein deprivation. Acetaminophen-induced hepatitis was characterized by a decrease of isocitrate dehydrogenase, a-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase and malate dehydrogenase activities, while the mitochondrial NAD+/NADН ratio remained at the control level. Modeling of acetaminophen-induced hepatitis in rats with alimentary protein caused a more pronounced decrease in the activity of NAD+-dependent dehydrogenases studied and a 2.2-fold increase of the mitochondrial NAD+/NADН ratio. This suggests that alimentary protein deprivation potentiated drug-induced liver damage
