  Blood vessels are composed of endothelial cells and other cell types and they are ubiquitously present in every organ. It is important to study the toxicity of cadmium to endothelial cells for understanding organic cadmium toxicity. Although vascular toxicity of cadmium has been studied previously, little is known about the underlying toxicity mechanism. Cadmium-sensitive mice have been reported to show high expression of zinc transporter, ZIP8, in endothelial cells of the testis vasculature… CONTINUE READING
