Bottom Line: The levels of lipid peroxide (LPO) and GSH were determined from RBC membranes and whole RBCs, respectively.The levels of TNFα and LPO also were determined from hepatic tissues.Finally, the study suggests that PbA-induced-hemolysis and related oxidative-toxicity might be minimized by consumption of G. lucidum.

ABSTRACT
We studied the effect of chronic oral exposure to lead acetate (PbA) on the sensitivity of RBC to hemolysis and whether the sensitivity could be decreased by feeding the rats with extract of medicinal mushroom Ganoderma lucidum. Three groups of rats, control, PbA-exposed, and G. lucidum (Gl)+PbA, were used. PbA (3 mM) was administered via drinking water and G. lucidum extract by gavage at 300 mg/Kg BW/day for 12 weeks. Afterwards, the rats were killed and washed RBCs were subjected to hemolysis in the presence of Fenton's reagents. Hemolysis was determined by estimating the amount of released hemoglobin. The levels of lipid peroxide (LPO) and GSH were determined from RBC membranes and whole RBCs, respectively. The levels of TNFα and LPO also were determined from hepatic tissues. The RBCs of PbA-exposed rats displayed significantly higher sensitivity to hemolysis than those of the Gl+PbA rats. The levels of LPO increased and GSH decreased in the RBCs, with concomitant increases in the levels of hepatic TNFα and LPO in the PbA-exposed rats. The degree of hemolysis was significantly low in the RBCs of Gl+PbA rats, concurrently with amelioration of hepatic parameters. Finally, the study suggests that PbA-induced-hemolysis and related oxidative-toxicity might be minimized by consumption of G. lucidum.

Effects of oral administration of G. lucidum on the levels of lipid peroxide (LPO) of RBC membranes and hepatic tissues. Results are mean ± SE (n = 6), each with duplicate determinations. Bars with different alphabets are significantly different at P < 0.05. Data were analyzed with one-way ANOVA, with Fisher's PLSD for post hoc comparison.

Bars with different alphabets are significantly different at P < 0.05. Data were analyzed with one-way ANOVA, with Fisher's PLSD for post hoc comparison.

Mentions: The levels of LPO were significantly increased (by 55%) in the RBC membranes of the Pb-exposed rats, as compared to those of the RBCs of control rats. The oral administration of the rats with G. lucidum, however, significantly decreased the levels of LPO, as compared to that of the PbA-exposed rats (Figure 5(a)). The levels of LPO were also significantly increased in the hepatic tissues of PbA-exposed rats (Figure 5(b)). The oral administration of G. lucidum to the rats, however, reduced the levels to those of the controls (Figure 5(b)).
