Tellurium tetrachloride (TeCl"4) and diphenyl ditelluride (DPDT) cytotoxicity, was investigated in rat astrocytes. Concentrations of 0.24-250@mM (24h) were tested for viability using MTT(3-[4,5-d...Read More
Seventy newly hatched ducklings were fed a commercial ration with 500 mg of added Te (as tetrachloride)/kg of feed for up to 28 days. Ducklings were euthanatized at day 14, 21, and 28, the hearts were...Read More
Selective inhibition of Zn(2+)-glycerophosphocholine cholinephosphodiesterase by tellurium tetrachloride.
A Zn(2+)-glycerophosphocholine cholinephosphodiesterase (EC 220.127.116.11) purified from mouse brain was found to be reversibly inhibited by tellurium tetrachloride. This effect was characterized by a comp...Read More
Diphenyl ditelluride (DPDT) and tellurium tetrachloride (TeCl(4)) were evaluated for toxicity in transformed (HT-29, Caco-2) and non-transformed colon cells (CCD-18Co). Significant decreases in viabil...Read More
Cytometric analysis of adverse action of diphenyl ditelluride on rat thymocytes: cell shrinkage as a cytotoxic parameter.
Despite the growing use of organotellurium compounds in the chemical and biomedical fields, there has been no great concern about their toxicity until now. To test the possibility that diphenyl ditell...Read More
