Disease relevance of potassium fluoride

  • Crystals of protein S6 from the small ribosomal subunit of an extreme thermophile, Thermus thermophilus, have been obtained by the hanging-drop/vapor diffusion technique using methane pentanediol as a precipitant in the presence of potassium fluoride [1].
  • The L5178Y mouse lymphoma cell forward-mutation assay was used to test for the mutagenic activity of sodium and potassium fluoride at the thymidine kinase locus [2].
  • The softness parameter applies to the metal ion only, so it cannot be used to predict the toxicity of compounds containing relatively nontoxic metal ions and toxic anions (e.g., potassium fluoride) [3].
  • A patient is described in whom multiple cardiac rhabdomyomas were an incidental finding at autopsy following fatal potassium fluoride poisoning [4].
