  The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of taurine on blood aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) activity in nonylphenol-induced rats. Forty rats were divided into 5 groups each containing 8 Wistar-albino male rats: control group (C) by standard rat feed, taurine group (T) by standard rat feed + 3% taurine (v/w) in drinking water, nonlyphenol group (NP) by standard rat feed + 50 μg kg-1 diet Nonlyphenol, Nonlyphenol + Taurine group (NPT) by standard rat feed + 50 μg kg-1 diet Nonlyphenol + 3% taurine (v/w) in drinking water and alcohol group (A) by standard rat feed +50 μL kg-1 diet alcohol were fed ad libitum for 30 days during the study. The blood ALAD activity significantly increased in T group compared the other experimental groups. Nonlyphenol treatment significantly decreased the blood ALAD activity as compared to control. Decreased levels of blood ALAD activity in NP group were significantly increased in NPT group. The ALAD activity significantly decreased in A group compared the T groups. The results demonstrate that taurine could provide great advantages against to side effects of nonlyphenol toxication on ALAD activity in rats those exposed to Nonylphenol.

  The aim of this study was to examine the effects of neosporosis on the oxidative stress cow naturally infected with Neospora caninum. Ten infected cow with Neospora caninum and ten healthy were included in this study. The neospora infection was diagnosed in the cows by using a commercially available competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit. Compared with healthy controls, levels of malondialdehyde and serum concentration of nitric oxide metabolites higher in the infected group. Furthermore, total antioxidant activities were found lowered in the infected group compared to the control group. The results demonstrated that oxidative stress markers are greatly increased in cows naturally infected with Neospora caninum.
