Toxicity of S-pentachlorobutadienyl-L-cysteine studied with isolated rat renal cortical mitochondria.

The subcellular mechanism of alkenyl halide S-conjugate-induced nephrotoxicity was studied in mitochondria isolated from rat kidney cortex in vitro using the cysteine conjugate of hexachloro-1,3-butadiene, i.e., S-pentachlorobutadienyl-L-cysteine (PCBC) as a model substrate. Respiring mitochondria exposed to various concentrations of PCBC exhibited a dose… CONTINUE READING
