Chloramphenicol-induced mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with decreased transferrin receptor expression and ferritin synthesis in K562 cells and is unrelated to IRE-IRP interactions.


Chloramphenicol is an antibiotic that consistently suppresses the bone marrow and induces sideroblastic anemia. It is also a rare cause of aplastic anemia. These toxicities are thought to be related to mitochondrial dysfunction, since chloramphenicol inhibits mitochondrial protein synthesis. We hypothesized that chloramphenicol-induced mitochondrial… (More)
