Ethanol production analysis in postmortem liver and muscle tissues of rats


Author(s): Mohammed Ageeli Sheikh, S Zeb and Abdullah Hakami

Abstract: This study investigated ethanol production in postmortem liver and muscle tissues of rats. The analysis aimed to assess the presence and quantity of ethanol in these tissues after death. A total of 100 rats were included in the study, and their liver and muscle tissues were subjected to ethanol analysis using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The results revealed varying levels of ethanol production in both liver and muscle tissues, with ethanol detected in 65% of liver tissue samples and 45% of muscle tissue samples. The concentration of ethanol ranged from 0.05 mg/g to 0.2 mg/g in liver tissue and from 0.03 mg/g to 0.15 mg/g in muscle tissue. Additionally, the time course of ethanol production postmortem showed a gradual increase in ethanol levels up to 24 hours postmortem. These findings contribute to our understanding of ethanol metabolism in postmortem tissues and have implications for forensic investigations involving alcohol-related deaths.
