Abstract :

The experiment was carried out on 20 Swiss male mice divided into experimental (E, n=10) and
control (C, n=10) group. E mice were intraperitoneally injected with glucagon (15 ىg/kg b.w.) twice
daily for eight days, while mice C with 250 ىl 0.9% NaCl/mouse (to exclude the injection effect only). In the lysosomal fraction of the liver the activities of acid phosphatase, â-N-acetyl-hexosaminidase, â-glucuronidase, â-glucosidase, lysosomal arylesterase, lysosomal lipase, leucine aminopeptidase and alanine aminopeptidase were determined. Glucagon caused an increase of activity of all studied enzymes except â-glucuronidase and â-glucosidase, where reduced activities were observed.
