Methylmercury (MeHg), a potent neurotoxicant, easily passes through the blood-brain barrier and accumulates in brain causing severe irreversible damage. However, the underlying neurotoxic mechanisms elicited by MeHg are still not completed defined. In this study, we aimed to investigate the in vitro toxic effects elicited by crescent concentrations (0-1500 microM) of MeHg on creatine kinase (CK) activity, thiol content (NPSH) and protein carbonyl content (PCC) in mouse brain preparations.
