A metabonomic approach using (1)H NMR spectroscopy was adopted to investigate the metabonomic pattern of rat urine after oral administration of environmental endocrine disruptors (EDs) polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo- p-dioxin (TCDD) alone or in combination and to explore the possible hepatotoxic mechanisms of combined(More)
Lead (Pb(2+)) is a well-known inhibitor of voltage-dependent Ca(2+) channels in their native environments in several types of cells. However, its effects on discrete Ca(2+) channel phenotypes in isolation have not been well studied. We compared how specific subtypes of human neuronal high-voltage-activated Ca(2+) channels were affected by acute exposure to(More)
Hypertension is a key risk factor in the progression of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Dyslipidemia, a strong predictor of CVD, frequently coexists with hypertension. Therefore, the control of hypertension and dyslipidemia may help reduce CVD morbidity and mortality. In the present study, the therapeutic effects of antihypertensive agents on blood pressure(More)
Methylmercury (MeHg) disrupts the function of native, high voltage-activated neuronal Ca(2+) channels in several types of cells. However, the effects of MeHg on isolated Ca(2+) channel phenotypes have not been examined. The aim of the present study was to examine the action of MeHg on recombinant, neuronal L-type voltage-sensitive Ca(2+) channels. Human(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the reproductive toxicity and cytotoxicity of T-2 toxin, which is a mycotoxin, and to explore its potential apoptotic induction mechanism. METHODS Ovarian granulosa cells of rats were treated with T-2 toxin (1-100nM) for 24h. The cytotoxicity was assessed with MTT bioassay; apoptotic cells were identified microscopically by(More)
Sulfur mustard (SM) is a highly reactive alkylating vesicant and causes blisters upon contact with skin, eyes, and respiratory organs. It covalently links with DNAs by forming four mono- or cross-link adducts. In this article, the reference standards of SM-DNA adducts and deuterated analogues were first synthesized with simplified procedures containing only(More)
Butenolide, 4-acetamido-4-hydroxy-2-butenoic acid gamma-lactone is one of the mycotoxins produced by Fusarium species which are often found on cereal grains and animal feeds throughout the world. It has been implicated as the etiology of some diseases both in animals and in humans. Though butenolide represents a potential threat to animal and human heath,(More)
Quinolones (QNs)-induced arthropathy is an important toxic effect in immature animals leading to restriction of their therapeutic use in pediatrics. However, the exact mechanism still remains unclear. Recently, we have demonstrated that ofloxacin, a typical QN, induces apoptosis of alginate microencapsulated juvenile rabbit joint chondrocytes by disturbing(More)
In this study, the delayed effect and related mechanism after chlorpyrifos (CPF) withdrawal was studied in primary rat hippocampal neurons. The results showed that 10 muM CPF induced no detectable cytotoxicity during 96 h continuous exposure while its withdrawal after 48 h exposure induced evident cytotoxicity, as indexed by decreased methyl thiazolyl(More)
A metabolomics-based systems toxicology approach was used to profile the urinary metabolites for the toxicity related processes and pathogenesis induced by doxorubicin (DOX) to rats. Endogenous metabolite profiles were obtained with ultra performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS) for rats receiving different single dosages of DOX (5, 10(More)
