Subcellular toxicity of low level cadmium in rats: effect on cytochrome c oxidase.

Abstract

The in vivo effect of cadmium (Cd) with or without prior administration of L-cysteine (Cys) or diethylmaleate (DEM) on hepatic and renal cytochrome c oxidase (Cyt-c-Ox), essential metals and mitochondrial thiols was investigated. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were given 25 micrograms Cd/kg (as Cd acetate) orally 5 times a week for 6 weeks. Different groups of… (More)
