In this study we compared biomarkers of oxidative stress, stress response, antioxidant defence and inflammation between mice (n = 10 per group, female, 7 months old) with an accelerated (SAMP8) and a normal ageing phenotype (SAMR1). As compared to SAMR1 mice, SAMP8 mice exhibited higher levels of lipid peroxides and protein carbonyls as well as a lower activity of the proteasomal subunit beta-5. Furthermore, heme oxygenase-1 and paraoxonase-1 (PON-1) status was lower in SAMP8 mice indicating impaired stress response. Biomarkers of inflammation such as C-reactive protein and serum amyloid P were elevated in SAMP8 mice. Interestingly, impaired stress response and increased inflammation in SAMP8 mice were associated with elevated concentrations of ascorbic acid and alpha-tocopherol in the liver. An age-dependent increase in hepatic vitamin E and a decline in PON-1 gene expression were also observed in aged compared to young C57BL/6 mice.
