Abstract: Studies of Km for glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and activities of superoxide dismutase and GPx were carried out in liver and erythrocytes of rats kept on either the normal semisynthetic diet or a high-fat diet with increased content of Cu, Zn, Mn, and Se. The diet containing microelement additions caused the increase in TBH affinity of liver and erythrocite GPx, as well as the decrease of liver SOD observed on the 14th day of the treatment of rats with the high-fat diet with additional increase of Cu, Zn, Mn, and Se.
