Combined treatment of rats with lead and disulfiram is known to cause increased levels of lead in brain and potentiation of the neurotoxicity of lead. Ten dithiocarbamate and thiuram compounds, including disulfiram, were compared for their efficacies in influencing tissue distribution of a trace dose of intravenously injected lead plus 203Pb in rats. The tested compounds were sodium diethyldithiocarbamate (DEDTC), sodium dimethyldithiocarbamate (DMDTC), tetraethylthiuram disulfide (disulfiram… Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that disulfiram probably influences the effects of lead on ALAD activity at the site of haem synthesis in the bone marrow. Expand
Increased lead uptake and inhibition of ALAD-activity in isolated rat hepatocytes incubated with lead-diethyldithiocarbamate complex.
TLDR
The rapid and high intracellular uptake and cellular response of Pb(DTC)2, shown in the present study, may explain the drastic effects of dithiocarbamates on lead distribution and toxicity previously shown in vivo. Expand
Dithiocarbamates have a common toxic effect on zebrafish body axis formation.
TLDR
The perturbation of no tail expression is in response to the muscle contractions distorting the notochord, while collagen 2a1 is associated with the impact of these molecules on much earlier developmental processes. Expand
Blockade of ovulation in the rat by the fungicide sodium N-methyldithiocarbamate: relationship between effects on the luteinizing hormone surge and alterations in hypothalamic catecholamines.
TLDR
The data indicate that while IP injections of SMD are able to block the LH surge and ovulation in these rats, the dose-response relationship suggests that, along with induced alterations in CA metabolism, an additional factor may be involved in the observed effects. Expand
Pyrrolidine Dithiocarbamate Induces Bovine Cerebral Endothelial Cell Death by Increasing the Intracellular Zinc Level
TLDR
Results suggest that an increase in intracellular zinc concentration is required in PDTC‐induced cerebral endothelial cell death, and indicate that metals such as cooper or zinc in serum may mediate the cytotoxic effect of PDTC. Expand
Cellular response after mobilization of metals by diethyldithiocarbamate in rat hepatocyte cultures.
TLDR
It is suggested that DTC decreases cellular effects of Pb and Cd despite unchanged or even increased cellular concentrations of the metals, while the antidotal efficacy of DTC on inorganic Hg toxicity seems to be of low value. Expand
Increased availability of mercury in rat hepatocytes by complex formation with diethyldithiocarbamate.
TLDR
The results from the present study indicate that diethyldithiocarbamate can increase the transport of HG across the cellular membrane by complex formation with Hg and thereby increase the toxicity of Hg. Expand
The MT1G Gene in LUHMES Neurons Is a Sensitive Biomarker of Neurotoxicity.
TLDR
Prior work suggesting that neurons are characteristically sensitive to depletion of glutathione or to disruption of cellular metal distribution is bolstered and biomarkers that respond to known neurotoxicants in LUHMES immortalized neurons provide biomarkers for use in screening libraries of environmental toxicants.

Dithiocarbamate-induced redistribution and increased brain uptake of lead in rats.
TLDR
The results indicate that a lipid-soluble complex between lead and the dithiocarbamates is formed in vivo and that these complexes have a high capacity to penetrate the blood-brain barrier and be retained in brain due to binding to lipid rich brain constituents. Expand
Increased lead levels in brain after long-term treatment with lead and dithiocarbamate or thiuram derivatives in rats.
TLDR
It is suggested that combined exposure of lead and dithiocarbamate/thiuram derivatives causes a substantial increase in brain levels of lead which are not always reflected in increases of blood lead levels. Expand
Effect of thiuram sulphides on the uptake and distribution of nickel in pregnant and non-pregnant mice.
TLDR
Determination of the chloroform/water partition coefficients for nickel in the presence of thiuram sulphides or sodium diethyldithiocarbamate showed that these compounds are able to form lipophilic complexes with the metal. Expand

The effect of sodium diethyldithiocarbamate treatment on copper and zinc concentrations in rat brain.
TLDR
Many of the observed effects of DDC on distribution may be attributed to the formation of lipid-soluble DDC-metal complexes, which are related to the kinetics and distribution of these essential metals. Expand
Increased lead concentration in brain and potentiation of lead-induced neuronal depression in rats after combined treatment with lead and disulfiram.
TLDR
It is suggested that disulfiram potentiates the adverse effects of lead on growth rates and on cerebellar Purkinje neuron function by facilitating the accumulation of lead in brain tissue. Expand
The effect of diethyldithiocarbamate on brain uptake of cadmium.
TLDR
DDC via a central adrenergic mechanism may cause a generalized increase in cerebral capillary permeability (CCP) to a diffusion-limited substance or may reduce cerebral blood flow (CBF) thereby prolonging cerebral circulatory transit time, supported by the finding that the addition of DDC to a CdCl2 solution increased the octanol-water partition coefficient of Cd (as DDC-Cd complex) by 375-fold.

TLDR
DDTC was significantly more effective than DMSA at an equimolar dose in reducing whole body Pb burdens when each was given po, but was less active than EDTA in lowering the Pb content of bone, kidneys, and brain. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that a lipid-soluble complex of lead and DDTC is formed, which is capable of penetrating the blood-brain barrier to a much higher extent than inorganic lead. Expand
