Abstract:Cellular detoxification and excretion enzymes are important to the maintenance of cellular homeostasis. In this work mRNA transcription, protein expression and enzymatic activity of Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs), enzymes involved in the excretion of endo and xenobiotic compounds were analyzed. These parameters are elements believed to protect cells against chemical toxicity and oxidative stress in different tissues (salivary gland, ovary and synganglion) from partially engorged females and engorged females… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
