Placental Endocrine Disruption Induced by Cadmium: Effects on P450 Cholesterol Side-Chain Cleavage and 3β-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Enzymes in Cultured Human Trophoblasts
Abstract We previously suggested that cadmium (Cd), an environmental toxicant and constituent of tobacco smoke, inhibits progesterone secretion in cultured human placental trophoblasts by inhibitingExpand

Protective action of zinc against cobalt-induced testicular damage in the mouse.
The purpose of this study was to determine if toxic effects of cobalt on the murine testis could be prevented by zinc, an essential metal for spermatogenesis. CD-1 male mice were administered one ofExpand

Bioaccumulation of lead nitrate in red swamp crayfish (Procambarus clarkii)
Abstract Crayfish were exposed to intermediate concentrations of lead nitrate (150 μgl −1 and 1100 μgl −1 ) for periods up to 7 weeks. Lead clearance was monitored at 3 weeks following the 7 weekExpand
