Cadmium (Cd) is a persistent environmental and occupational contaminant that accumulates in the liver and induces oxidative stress and inflammation. Melatonin possesses potent hepatoprotective properties against the development and progression of acute and chronic liver injury. Nevertheless, the molecular mechanism underlying the protective effects of melatonin against Cd-induced hepatotoxicity remains obscure. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of melatonin on Cd-induced liver… CONTINUE READING
