ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which examines the impact of metallothionein-like cadmium (Cd) binding protein in the testes of rats that received Cd and selenium (Se) treatments. Study used atomic absorption spectrophotometry for cadmium analysis and conducted amino acid analysis of the sampled rats after hydrolysis. Results show that Cd binding protein in the rats' testis plays a protective role in the acute Cd toxicity that is analogous to the metallothionein in their kidney and liver.
