Effect of thimerosal and other sulfhydryl reagents on calcium permeability in thymus lymphocytes.

Abstract

We have studied the effects of thimerosal, a mercurial compound extensively used as a preservative, as well as other sulfhydryl reagents (e.g. p-hydroxymercurybenzoate, hydrogen peroxide, bromophenacyl bromide, and mercuric chloride) on Ca2+ homeostasis and the redox status of sulfhydryl groups in thymus lymphocytes. They all induced an increase in [Ca2+]i… (More)
