Vitamin C exerts novel protective effects against cadmium toxicity in mouse spermatozoa by inducing the dephosphorylation of dihydrolipoamide dehydrogenase.

Cadmium (Cd) has been reported to inhibit mouse sperm motility by inducing the tyrosine phosphorylation of dihydrolipoamide dehydrogenase (DLD). This study aimed to assess the potential effects of vitamin C (Vc) on ameliorating Cd-induced tyrosine phosphorylation of DLD and the specific underlying mechanism. Vc induced the dephosphorylation of DLD or… CONTINUE READING
