Cadmium may induce oxidative damage in different tissues by enhancing peroxidation of membrane lipids and altering the antioxidant system of the cells. The peroxidative damage to the cell membrane may cause injury to cellular components due to the interaction of metal ions with the cell organelles. The treatment with Cd (0.4 mg/kg body wt, ip) significantly increased lipid peroxidation (LPO) in heart within 3 h of the Cd injection, while the increase in kidney and liver followed 6 to 12 h after… CONTINUE READING
