Introduction: The potential toxicity of DTDS has not been studied. Material and Methods: Effect of DTDS on sulfhydryl enzymes activities was investigated in vitro and single oral doses were administered in rats. Results: DTDS inhibited δ-ALA-D and Na+–K+-ATPase activities, these effects were restored by DTT, and elicited thiol oxidase-like activity. In vivo, DTDS caused systemic toxicity. Discussion: Interaction with cisteinyl residues seems to mediate the inhibitory effects in vitro. Moreover, high oral doses of DTDS induced toxicity in rats.
