Trichlorfon-induced apoptosis in hepatocyte primary cultures of Carassius auratus gibelio.

Trichlorfon, an organophosphorus pesticide, can disrupt metabolism, reproduction and immune functions of some aquatic animals. In the present study, the effect of trichlorfon on apoptosis and the underlying apoptotic mechanism were investigated in primary cultures of Carassius auratus gibelio hepatocytes. Analyses of cultures exposed to 0, 0.01, 0.1, and 1… CONTINUE READING
