In this study, primary cultures of chicken tibial growth plate chondrocytes were treated with T-2 toxin in the absence and presence of N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) to investigate the effects of NAC on T-2 toxin toxicity. Our results showed that T-2 toxin-induced cytotoxicity was reversed, in part, by antioxidant NAC (P < 0.05), suggesting that T-2 toxin inhibits the proliferation and differentiation of GPCs in vitro by altering cellular homeostasis and NAC can protect GPCs against T-2 toxin cytotoxicity.
