Cellular adaptation to chronic cadmium exposure: intracellular localization of metallothionein protein in human trophoblast cells (JAr).

Abstract

Trophoblast cells are the first embryonic cells that modulate the transfer of a variety of compounds (oxygen, amino acids, xenobiotics, metals) from the maternal to the fetal circulation in the human placenta. Human placental exposure to the toxic metal, cadmium (Cd) results in a decrease in the production of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), a decrease… (More)
