Lead (Pb) is a toxic metal widely used as a raw material in the industry for the manufacture of rubber, glazes, glass and especially in automotive battery factories where workers are exposed to metal. Due to its potential to produce free radicals and reactive species, Pb can cause damage to the DNA, which, if not correctly repaired, generates cytogenetic damage, such as micronuclei (MNs...
Much is known about the oxidation of biomolecules and their relationship to Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and intracellular redox imbalance systems. However, little is known regarding the transition metals present in trace amounts (such as copper, iron and zinc) and their engagement in this type of oxidation mechanism. Our research group has actively contributed to the elucidation of th...
