Interaction of xenobiotics on the glucose-transport system and the Na+/K(+)-ATPase of human skin fibroblasts.

The effects of individual and combined xenobiotics on functional properties of the plasma membrane of human skin fibroblasts were investigated. Good correlations between toxic effects on the D-glucose transport system or the Na+/K(+)-ATPase and the lipophilicity of the substances could be observed. The linear regression coefficients plotting log EC20 values… CONTINUE READING
