Copper (Cu) is considered an essential metal for living organisms. However, disruption of Cu homeostasis is toxic and can lead to disorders such as Menkes and Wilson's diseases. The brain appears to be a vulnerable target organ. This study investigated the toxicity of Cu based on its solubility profile and cell type tested. Human A-172 (glioblastoma), SK-N-SH (neuroblastoma) and CCF-STTG1 (astrocytoma) cells were assessed after exposure to different concentrations (0.5-500μM) of copper sulfate… CONTINUE READING
