Subcellular distribution and binding of heavy metals in the untreated liver of the squid; comparison with data from the livers of cadmium and silver-exposed rats
In natural squid liver, about 30% of the total Cd present was found in the cytosolic fraction. A large portion of this Cd was bound to high molecular weight species (mol. wt>70,000). In contrast to Cd, about 60% of the total Ag occurred in the cytosolic fraction; Ag was bound mainly to low molecular weight species (mol. wt<20,000).
