The effects of copper and cadmium on metabolism through the pentose phosphate pathway were evaluated in Bufo arenarum toad ovary. The effects of the two metals on dehydrogenases from this pathway were evaluated by three experiments: (1) in samples obtained from control females with addition of the metals to the reaction mixture (in vitro), (2) in samples obtained from control females and after long-term exposure of females to 4 and 100 microg/L of Cu or Cd in the incubation media (in vitro… CONTINUE READING
