[Effect of chlorimethylmercury on the expression of c-fos and c-jun genes in rat brain].

Abstract

To study the role of immediate early genes (IEG) c-fos and c-jun in the neurotoxic mechanism of methylmercury chloride(MMC), expression of FOS and JUN in rat brains was observed by using immunohistochemical methods. In the test group MMC (5.0 mg/kg and 0.1 mg/kg) was injected into rats while in the control group normal saline was injected. The results… (More)
