Increased Antioxidant and White Blood Cell Counts and Decreased Free Radical Production During Mild Heat Stress in Uromastyx egyptius

A.M. Al-Johany and A.S. Haffor

Abstract:
The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of mild heat stress on the activity of Biological Antioxidant Potential (BAP), Free Radicals production (FR) and white blood cell count (WBC) in spiny tailed lizard, Uromastyx egyptius. The experimental group underwent mild-moderate heat stress (33-35°C) for six weeks period. In comparison with the control group FR production decreased significantly. The biological antioxidant potential, WBC and lymphocyte were significantly higher in the experimental group. The regression of BAP on WBC was significant in the experimental group. There were no significant changes in the enzymes of liver function profile in terms of AST, ALT and LDH activities. These results indicate that mild heat stress induces positive physiological responses that related to the activities of antioxidant enzymes and immune cells proliferation and differentiation.
