The aim of this study was to investigate the possible involvement of the glutamatergic system in the toxicity of organochalcogens, since this is an important neurotransmitter system for signal transduction and neural function. The results indicated that 100 microM diphenyl diselenide (PhSe)(2) and diphenyl ditelluride (PhTe)(2) inhibit by 50 and 70% (P<0.05), respectively, [(3)H]glutamate binding in vitro. Acute administration of 25 micromol/kg (PhSe)(2) or 3 micromol/kg (PhTe)(2) caused a… Expand
Diphenyl diselenide and diphenyl ditelluride: neurotoxic effect in brain of young rats, in vitro
TLDR
The results suggest that (PhSe)2 and (PhTe)2 caused alterations on the homeostasis of the glutamatergic system at the pre-synaptic level that were age-, concentration-, and compound-dependent. Expand
Diphenyl diselenide and diphenyl ditelluride increase the latency for 4-aminopyridine-induced chemical seizure and prevent death in mice.
TLDR
Evidence is provided for anticonvulsant and antioxidant properties of (PhSe)(2) and (PhTe)(2), which indicates a neuroprotective activity of these compounds. Expand
Effects of diphenyl diselenide and diphenyl ditellurite on chicken embryo development
TLDR
The results indicate that (PhTe)2 seems not be promissory for therapeutic applications, whereas (PhSe)2 could be of clinical and/or nutritional concern, which will be target for further researches. Expand
Organochalcogens Affect the Glutamatergic Neurotransmission in Human Platelets
TLDR
Blood platelets were demonstrated to be a suitable model for neurotoxicological research, and, to the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first report documenting the toxic effects of organochalcogens in human platelets. Expand
Diphenyl diselenide confers neuroprotection against hydrogen peroxide toxicity in hippocampal slices
TLDR
The present results indicate that (PhSe)2 exerts protective effects against H2O2-induced oxidative damage in hippocampal slices and avoided the increase in ERK1/2 phosphorylation promoted by H1N2, and appears to be related to its thiol-peroxidase-like activity. Expand
Protective effects of diphenyl diselenide in a mouse model of brain toxicity.
TLDR
Investigation of the protective effect of the organic selenium compound diphenyl diselenide (PhSe)2 in a mouse model of methylmercury (MeHg)-induced brain toxicity indicates that it could be consider as a neuroprotectant compound to be tested under neurotoxicity. Expand
Effect of diphenyl diselenide, diphenyl ditelluride and ebselen on cerebral Na(+), K(+)-ATPase activity in rats.
TLDR
Cerebral Na(+), K(+)-ATPase is a potential molecular target for the toxic effect of organochalcogens and the inhibition may occur through a change in the crucial thiol groups of this enzyme. Expand
Antinociceptive properties of diphenyl diselenide: evidences for the mechanism of action.
TLDR
Results indicate that diphenyl diselenide produced antinociception in several models of pain through mechanisms that involve an interaction with not only nitrergic system but also via interaction with redox modulatory sites of glutamate receptors. Expand
Ebselen and diorganylchalcogenides decrease in vitro glutamate uptake by rat brain slices: prevention by DTT and GSH.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the neurotoxicity of organochalcogenides could be related to their effects on brain glutamate uptake, conceivably involving a redox modulation of reactive amino acids from the glutamate transporter proteins. Expand
Diphenyl diselenide ameliorates behavioral and oxidative parameters in an animal model of mania induced by ouabain
TLDR
Diphenyl diselenide [(PhSe)(2)], an organoselenium compound with pharmacological properties, is effective against ouabain-induced hyperactivity and alterations in cerebral oxidative status of rats, and produced an antimanic-like action, since it was effective against the locomotor hyperactivity elicited by ouABain.

Diphenyl diselenide and diphenyl ditelluride differentially affect δ‐aminolevulinate dehydratase from liver, kidney, and brain of mice
TLDR
The results suggest that δ‐ALA‐D inhibition after exposure to organochalcogens may perturb heme‐dependent metabolic pathway and contribute to the toxicological properties of these compounds. Expand
Diphenyl diselenide and ascorbic acid changes deposition of selenium and ascorbic acid in liver and brain of mice.
TLDR
It is shown that ascorbic acid can reverse some alterations caused by in vivo selenium exposure, but not ALA-D inhibition, and this study suggests that vitamin C may have a protective role in organodiselenide intoxication. Expand
Effect of organic forms of selenium on delta-aminolevulinate dehydratase from liver, kidney, and brain of adult rats.
TLDR
The results suggest that delta-ALA-D from liver, kidney, and brain is a potential molecular target for the toxic effect of organic forms of selenium and tellurium. Expand
A novel biologically active seleno-organic compound--II. Activity of PZ 51 in relation to glutathione peroxidase.
TLDR
In mouse liver microsomes, NADPH-dependent aminopyrine dealkylation was totally inhibited in the presence of 50 mumol/1 PZ 51, and in vivo experiments with Se-deficient mice showed that the Se-moiety of Pz 51 is not available for the synthesis of the selenoenzyme GSH-Px after dietary treatment or i.p. doses up to 25 mg Se.

TLDR
Diaryl tellurides were found efficiently to retard azo-initiated lipid peroxidation of linoleic acid in methanol and mechanisms involving both hydrogen atom transfer and electron transfer were operative in the reaction of organotellurides with DPPH. Expand
