Effects of Acute Heat Stress on Lipid Peroxidation and Glutathione Levels in Liver and Muscle Tissues of Kars Native Geese which Feeding Different Cereal Grains

Serpil Kalaycı, Ökkeş Yılmaz


The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effects of acute heat stress on lipid peroxidation and glutathione levels in liver and muscle tissues of Kars native geese which feeding different cereal grains. Geese were randomly assigned to 5 experimental groups (7 animals/ group) which feeding different cereal grains. The first group was used as the control group. The second group was only fed with barley, the third group with wheat, the fourth group with rye and the fifth group with corn. This feeding was done for 6 weeks. Water and feed were provided for ad libitum consumption. According to our results, while in liver groups LPO amount was decreased compared to the control group, it was increased in the muscle tissues. In addition, in the liver and muscle tissues the heat stress significantly increases lipid peroxidation. While the amount of GSH was increased in barley, white and corn groups of liver, it was decreased in thigh and back meat compared to the control group.
