Stimulation of endothelin production in cultured human endothelial cells by fluorescent compounds associated with blackfoot disease.

Abstract

The fluorescent compounds (FC) in humic substances isolated from the drinking water of endemic areas of blackfoot disease have been characterized as the causative factor of the disease. In this report we studied the effects of these fluorescent compounds on the synthesis and secretion of endothelin-1 by cultured human umbilical cord vein endothelial cells… (More)
