Homocysteine and the Renal Epithelial Transport and Toxicity of Inorganic Mercury: Role of Basolateral Transporter Organic Anion Transporter 1

The epithelial cells that line the renal proximal tubule have been shown to be the primary cellular targets where mercuric ions gain entry, accumulate, and induce pathologic effects in vivo.…

Mercury Activates Vascular Endothelial Cell Phospholipase D through Thiols and Oxidative Stress

Currently, mercury has been identified as a risk factor of cardiovascular diseases among humans. Here, the authors tested the hypothesis that mercury modulates the activity of the endothelial lipid signaling…
