Differing effects of toxicants (methylmercury, inorganic mercury, lead, amyloid β, and rotenone) on cultured rat cerebrocortical neurons: differential expression of rho proteins associated with neurotoxicity.


Methylmercury (MeHg), inorganic mercury (IHg), lead (Pb), amyloid-β peptide (Aβ), and rotenone (RTN) are well-known toxicants. Here, we demonstrate that these five toxicants exhibit differing effects on cerebrocortical neurons. The concentration responsible for 30% loss of viability (EC30) values 3 days after exposure was approximately 100nM for MeHg, IHg… (More)
