Researches of features of lipid composition, functioning of the system of antioxidant defense, maintenance of lipid peroxidation products in the quail’s pancreas on the early postnatal ontogenesis stages are conducted for actions of nitrates and feeding with amaranth’s seeds in mixed fodder. The arrival of nitrates in the organism of quails results in the decline of general lipids maintenance and nonetherified fat acids in the pancreas. Using­ of amaranth’s seeds in mixed fodder on the background of the nitrate loading results in the increase of activity of the enzimes system of antioxidant defence, the growth of general lipid level in the quail’s pancreas. Thus in correlation with separate classes of lipid maintenance of cholesterol goes down for certain, whereas the maintenance of triacylglycerols and ethers of cholesterol rises. The results obtained in the researches show the abili­ty of amaranth’s seeds to avert oxidative stress in quail’s pancreas under nitrates influence.

Key words: lipid composition, antioxidant defence system, lipid peroxidation, pancreas, quail’s, nitrate loading, amaranth’s seed.
