Short-Term Exposure to Nickel Alters the Adult Rat Brain Antioxidant Status and the Activities of Crucial Membrane-Bound Enzymes: Neuroprotection by L-Cysteine

Abstract

Nickel (Ni) is an environmental pollutant towards which human exposure can be both occupational (mainly through inhalation) and dietary (through water and food chain-induced bioaccumulation). The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of short-term Ni-administration (as NiCl2, 13 mg/kg) on the adult rat whole brain total antioxidant status (TAS… (More)
