Menadione-catalyzed H2O2 production by viable animal cells was proportional to the viable cell number, and H2O2 production decreased with increasing cytotoxic effects after the incubation of cells with cytotoxic compounds. The cytotoxic effects of food additives, pesticides, antibiotics, heavy metals, phytotoxins, mycotoxins, and marine toxins were… CONTINUE READING
