Recent years have witnessed a large development of the research on biochemical mechanisms involved with CCl4 toxicity, as a result of the more frequent presence of this compound in the atmosphere of certain industrial centers. Thus CCl4, known for its high toxic potential, appears to be one of the substances polluting the atmosphere[1].
