Cadmium (Cd2+) is a nonessential divalent metal ion that causes toxicity in multiple organs in humans. In order for toxicity to occur Cd2+ must first enter cells by utilizing transport pathways for essential metals. This review focuses on studies in which Cd2+ transport was directly demonstrated by electrophysiological, radiotracer or Cd2+-sensitive fluorescent dye techniques. The chemistry of Cd2+ and metal ions in general is addressed in the context of properties relevant for transport… CONTINUE READING
