To determine the organ specificity of neonatal mercury hydroxide (CH3HgOH) exposure on biochemical development of its potential target tissues, effects on rat brain, liver, heart and kidney were compared utilizing the ontogenetic pattern of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activity, an early index of perturbation of cellular maturation. CH3HgOH was given daily(More)
The effects of neonatal CH3-Hg exposure on development and function of peripheral catecholaminergic synapses were examined by measuring tissue norepinephrine (NE) levels and turnover rates and cardiac biochemical responses to sympathetic reflex stimulation. In the rat, cardiac sympathetic neurotransmission normally develops towards the end of the first week(More)
