The effects of sulfhydryl blockers and metal ions on nickel accumulation by rat primary hepatocyte cultures.


Previously, we found that nickel (Ni) accumulation by rat hepatocytes involves Ca channel transport processes. However, other mechanisms responsible for Ni accumulation are still unclear. Therefore, in the present study we examined the effects of sulfhydryl (SH) blockers on Ni accumulation by hepatocytes. Hepatocytes were exposed to various concentrations… (More)
