Opposite effects of Ca2+ on toxicity by CdCl2 on white blood cells (WBC), protein level and LD50 of rabbits Oryctolagus cuniculus

Heavy metals and their derivatives are a special class of toxic substances. Many metals are useful for industrial, agricultural and medical applications. Indeed, they can go back through the food chain and thus achievable to human being. Our aim is to study an example of heavy metals cadmium (CdCl2) at two concentrations 30 and 60 ppm on biological model Oryctolagus cuniculus that is often used in...

Correlation between glutathione S-transferase Mu 1 (GSTM1) and glutathione S-transferase pi gene (GSTP1) polymorphisms and markers of inflammatory stress in pregnant females

The Mother and Child Environmental Cohort (MACE) study piloted in South Africa in 2010 to 2011, collected genetic, biochemical and clinical data from pregnant females residing in south and north Durban. We evaluated birth outcomes and the influence of GSTM1pos→GSTM1null and theGSTP1 (Ile105Val; AA→AG/GG) polymorphisms on the extent of DNA damage and with biomarkers [glutathione (GSH) and...
