The cadmium (Cd) effect on ovary δ-aminolevulinate dehydratase (δ-ALA-D) activity was investigated in vitro and ex vivo. Cadmium inhibited cow ovary δ-ALA-D activity and seleno-furanoside did not reverse the Cd toxicity in vitro. Acute Cd exposure caused a significant inhibition on ovary δ-ALA-D activity in mice and seleno-furanoside was able in restoring enzyme activity. Ovarian δ-ALA-D activity is inhibited by Cd both in vitro and ex vivo and the seleno-furanoside therapy was effective after Cd acute exposure in mice.
