Author(s):

Abstract:
The present preliminary study undertaken to assess the status of oxidative stress by estimation of superoxide dismutase (SOD), reduced glutathione (GSH), malondialdehyde (MDA) and total protein (TP) in blood plasma of maternal dystocia affected Ongole and Punganur breeds of cattle. The results showed that blood plasma of maternal dystocia affected animals MDA production was increased and antioxidant enzymes levels were decreased. Increased level of oxidative stress in fetomaternal disproportion affected cattle was recorded in the present study. In conclusion, decreased levels of anti-oxidant enzymes and elevated levels of lipid peroxidation metabolites indicated progression towards deteriorative action of various reactive oxygen metabolites and acutely severe oxidative stress which have been produced during the time of calving.
