Copper-nitrilotriacetate (Cu-NTA) is a potent inducer of proliferative response both in liver and kidney but is a complete renal carcinogen.

Abstract

Earlier we have shown that ferric-nitrilotriacetate (Fe-NTA) is a hepatic as well as renal tumor promoter and acts by elaborating oxidative stress. In this study we show that copper-nitrilotriacetate (Cu-NTA) is a potent inducer of proliferative response both in liver and kidney but is a complete renal carcinogen. Similar to Fe-NTA, Cu-NTA has an ability to… (More)
