Using biochemical and physicochemical methods of investigation in vivo, the effect of the substance NC-224, N-,S-chinasolone-derivative, on the lipoperoxidation activity in rat liver endoplasmatic reticulum membranes and nuclear chromatin fractions under tetrachloromethane intoxication have been studied. It was shown that NC-224 has pronounced antioxidant activity which is the biochemical basis of the substance membrane- and genome-protective effects and its ability to restore physicochemical properties of the surface and hyd­rophobic zones of hepatocyte membranes and structural parameter nuclear chromatin fractions in the conditions of chemical liver injury.

Key words: transcriptionally active chromatin, repressed chromatin, membrane endoplasmatic reticulum, tetrachloromethane, lipoperoxidation, fluorescence probe, chinazolone derivate, antioxidante.
