The uptake of cadmium by isolated liver cells was linearly related to the cadmium concentration to which the cells were exposed in the medium. Cadmium-treated cells synthesized proteins de novo with the characteristics of cadmium-thionein induced in the liver of cadmium-treated animals. Thionein from liver cells incorporated cadmium and [35S]cysteine, had a(More)
Cadmium can elicit the synthesis of thionein in liver cells independent of tissue-organ interactions. The metal diffuses across the plasma membrane and is partitioned between subcellular components in a time dependent manner such that thionein synthesis responds to levels of nonspecifically and specifically bound cytoplasmic metal. Cadmium appears to(More)
