Inhibitory effect of tetrachloro-p-hydroquinone and other metabolites of hexachlorobenzene on hepatic uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase activity with reference to the role of glutathione

Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
G KossW Koransky


Exposure of rats to HCB caused a dose-dependent depletion of GSH. Chlorophenolic and sulfur-containing metabolites of HCB incubated with GSH-free rat liver cytosolic protein drastically diminished the UROD activity. In addition, HCB also exhibited inhibitory potency. The most effective compounds studied were TCH and its oxidation product, chloranil. Incubation of liver cytosolic protein and of GSH with HCB and its metabolites yielded results that suggested interaction between the compounds and cell constituents--an interaction that may cause inhibition of the hepatic UROD activity in the HCB-exposed organism.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration

HLA Genetic Variation

HLA genetic variation has been found to confer risk for a wide variety of diseases. Identifying these associations and understanding their molecular mechanisms is ongoing and holds promise for the development of therapeutics. Find the latest research on HLA genetic variation here.
