Incorporation of gossypol and formation of its protein conjugates in mouse transformed Sertoli (TM4) cells.


Mitochondria of both mouse transformed Sertoli (TM4) cells and primary-cultured rat and mouse Sertoli cells were shown to be preferentially affected by gossypol (Tanphaichitr et al, 1984). To investigate whether this selective effect was due to a greater of TM4 cells to accumulate gossypol, TM4 and other somatic cell lines, including dog (MDCK) and kangaroo… (More)
