Renal handling of inorganic mercury in mice. The early excretion phase following a single intravenous injection of mercuric chloride studied by the Silver Amplification method.

Abstract

The early renal excretion of mercuric mercury was studied in male BALB/c mice between 15 seconds and 30 min following a single intravenous injection of 3 mg HgCl2/kg body weight. The cytochemical Silver Amplification method applied at the light and electron microscopical levels showed mercury to be excreted by glomerular filtration and reabsorbed by… (More)
