Abstract

The effect of dietary fibre and butyric acid on lysosomal enzyme activities in different tissues of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats was studied by analysing the specific activities of N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase, beta-D-glucuronidase, beta-D-galactosidase and acid phosphatase in various tissues. An alteration in the activities of these lysosomal enzymes in different tissues was observed in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. Dietary fibre and butyric acid supplementation at 500 mg/kg body wt./day was found to be effective in modulating the altered glycosidase activity in liver, spleen, heart, lungs, testis and brain during diabetes. Results also indicated that butyric acid along with dietary fibre is involved in minimizing oxidative stress-induced tissue damage, thereby regulating the altered enzyme activities in different tissues during diabetes.
