The effect of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) on oxidative enzymes in adipocytes and liver.

Reactive oxygen species are produced in response to environmental toxins, and previous studies have suggested that 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) damages a number of target organs through the generation of oxygen free radicals and oxidative stress. Upon exposure, TCDD becomes concentrated in adipose tissue, and adversely affects many organs… (More)
