Protection by phalloidin against lethal doses of phalloidin

  • G. L. Floersheim
Regulation of Respiration Models in Toxicology


Tolerated doses of phalloidin, a toxin from the mushroomAmanita phalloides, protect mice against lethal doses of phalloidin. Resistance is conferred by the 1/10 LD95 of phalloidin and sets in at about 8 hours after the pretreatment.
