Cyanide Liberation and Oxidative Stress by Organothiocyanates, Organonitriles and Nitroprusside in Isolated Hepatocytes
Organothiocyanates and organonitriles are effective insecticide and fungicide chemicals. Glutathione-S-transferases may play a role in the liberation of HCN from organothiocyanates whereas mixed-function oxidases may play a role in HCN liberation from various organonitriles [Ohkawa et al., 1972].
