Living beings are constantly exposed to a wide variety of environmental contaminants and their biochemical response can be employed to assess the possible biological impact of such pollution. Sex can play a major role in the uptake, fate, and effects of contaminants in organisms. The present study evaluated endogenous levels of different biomarkers in liver, kidney and lung in both male and female roe deer in order to determine normal levels of these biomarkers and sex-related differences in this species. Post-mitochondrial cytochrome P450 subfamily 1A1, as well as phase II enzymes glutathione S-transferase and uridine diphospho-glucuronosyltransferase, and lipid peroxidation in terms of malondialdehyde levels were determined. The highest values of all the considered parameters were quantifed in liver. Results showed no differences by gender in levels of enzymatic activities in the three considered tissues. However, a statistical difference (P<0.05) in lipid peroxidation was observed in liver, fnding higher values in males. Nevertheless, the differences related to sex in this organ should be taken into account when the effect of pollutants has to be studied on specifc ecosystems. © 2014, I. de la Casa-Resino, D.
