Administration of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) for 14 days caused a significant increase in the total ubiquinone-9 level in the hepatic tissue of male F-344 rats (p < 0.05). Hepatic ubiquinone-10 level of DHEAS-treated rats however, was found not to be statistically different from control animals. These findings suggest that peroxisome proliferator DHEAS displays typical hepatic response in increasing ubiquinone concentration in the rat.
