Hypo Thesis: The Etiology of Schizophrenia III
… It has been reported that the glucose and lipid metabolism is disturbed by carbon disulfide both in experimental animals and in exposed workers, but not to conclusive. There is a large body of indirect information associating abnormal energy metabolism in peripheral neuropathies caused by CS2.
In Clostridium thermoaceticum Carbon monoxide dehydrogenase CODH has three paramagnetic centers iron-nickel-sulfur, labeled A,B and C. CS2 mimics CO at centre A, competively, thereby most probably alternating parts of it’s enzymologic timing and functionality. (BB) The function of CS2 in the human Acetyl-CoA, remains to be elucidated.
Rats exposed to carbon disulphide displayed different symptoms of intoxication pending on the type of exposure. CC The damage by CS2 is related to the status of Glutathion and its protective role. Glutathion depletion have been shown in rats exposed to high levels of CS2 followed by high exposure.
The disturbance in the energy-transfer processes, provoked by carbon disulphide in rat mitochondria causes a loss of respiratory control, oxidative phosphorylation, (CC) reduced NAD content i rat liver mitochondria. (DD)
