N-Acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) has been widely used in the protection against the toxic effects produced by several chemicals because of its radical scavenger properties and because NAC is a precursor of glutathione, one of the most important intracellular defenses against oxidants. The aim of this investigation was to verify the potential protective activity of NAC against the well-known embryotoxicity induced by methyl mercuric chloride (MMC) in mice. Three experimental approaches were carried out… CONTINUE READING
