Reduced retention of cadmium in the liver of metallothionein-null mice.

Abstract

When mice were administered with Cd chloride at a single subcutaneous dose of 1.0 mg Cd/kg body weight, Cd accumulated mainly in the liver and kidney by 6 h after injection without any significant difference between the MT-null mice and… (More)
