Psychiatry related information on dichloromethane


High impact information on dichloromethane

  • Upon CdCl(2)-treatment, both Sertoli cells and the germ cells upregulated Fas ligand; this event was also suppressed by zinc protoporphyrin-IX and restored by dichloromethane [7].
  • They were associated with a Mg-ATPase which could be solubilized with dichloromethane from vesicle membranes, and which elutes upon gel filtration with a mol. wt. approximately 300 kd [8].
  • X-ray structural analysis of human deoxyhemoglobin crystals exposed to dichloromethane shows four unique binding sites [9].
  • Inasmuch as GSTT1 is responsible for the metabolic activation of dihaloalkanes, selenium deficiency may increase the susceptibility of rats to mutagens such as dichloromethane [10].
  • One-electron oxidation of 4a-e with FeCl(3) in dichloromethane results in the appearance of specific polaronic bands in the near-infrared region of the electronic absorption spectra, due to the generation of a radical cation species (polaron) on one of the quinquethiophenes, which electronically interacts with the remaining neutral species [11].
