Abstract Literature on the biological effects of mercurials was reviewed with the purpose of understanding impact on individual organisms in terms of biochemical or cellular damage. Mercurialism is manifested primarily in kidney or brain damage in animals and in growth reduction in plants. Exposure to inorganic mercury compounds usually results in kidney damage while alkyl mercurialism is characterized by brain damage; however, some degree of both kidney and neurological injury results from exposure to either category of mercurials. Kidney injury is due apparently to damage of Kreb's cycle enzymes, thus reducing available energy to actively resorbtions. Impaired protein synthesis as well as reduction in activity of Kreb's cycle enzymes may be important in brain damage resulting from mercury poisoning.
