There were a significant positive correlations between alkaline, acid DNase activity and Ecto-5-prime nucleotidase with serum lead in group A [Iraqi workers employed on the operation of diesel generators] as shown in table 6.
In the Ap and N-9 treated groups the number of acrosome reacted cells were found to be high and it also caused agglutination of the sperms indicating the loss of intactness of the plasma membrane which was further supported by the significant reduction in the activity of membrane bound 5' nucleotidase and acrosin enzyme.
The activities of pyrimidine nucleotidase (P5'N) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide synthase (NADS) are also modified in blood after Pb exposure.
Drug inactivation can result from Ara-CMP conversion into Ara-uracil by cytidine deaminase (cdd), or from dephosphorylation of Ara-CMP by cytoplasmic nucleotidase (3).
B-A reduces the elevated levels of serum alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), [gamma]-glutamyl transferase ([gamma]-GT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), 5' nucleotidase (5'ND).
Laboratory results since her referral included vitamin B12 245 ng/L [reference interval (RI), 251911 ng/L], iron 370 ug/L (RI, 400-1450 [micro]g/L), anti-tTG IgA 13 AU (RI, 0-20 AU), and 5' nucleotidase 22.
