Role of Reactive Oxygen Species and Glutathione in Inorganic Mercury-Induced Injury in Human Glioma Cells

Abstract

The present study was undertaken to examine the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and glutathione (GSH) in glia cells using human glioma cell line A172 cells. HgCl2 caused the loss of cell viability in a dose-dependent manner. HgCl2-induced loss of cell viability was not affected by H2O2 scavengers catalase and pyruvate, a superoxide scavenger… (More)
