Effects of several chelating substances having sulfhydryl group on behavior of methylmercury in mouse tissues and on the release of methylmercury from the erythrocytes in vitro were investigated. The reciprocals of methylmercury concentration in the tissues of mice administered with the sulfhydryl compounds were well correlated with the amounts of methylmercury released in vitro from the erythrocytes in the presence of the respective substance.
