Abstract

© 2014 Elsevier Ltd. The aim of this study was to evaluate serum activities of paraoxonase 1 (PON1) using three substrates; (1) 4-nitrophenylacetate (PON1n), (2) phenylacetate (PON1p), and (3) 5-thiobutyl butyrolactonase (PON1t), and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) in dogs with hyperadrenocorticism (HAC). Serum activities of PON1 and BChE were higher in dogs with HAC than healthy dogs. There were strong positive correlations between PON1 activity measured with the three different substrates. This study demonstrated increased serum PON1 and BChE activities in dogs with HAC that could be attributed to the direct effect of glucocorticoids and lipid mobilisation.
