DL-ethionine changes behavior of hepatic functions by working as a carcinogenic agent that induces cholangiocarcinogensis in vivo and can be used to induce oxidative stress on the liver to measure antioxidant enzymatic activity. In the pancreas it destroys acinar cells and eventually induces pancreatitis in rats. DL-ethionine also inhibits incorporation of amino acids, like methionine and glycine, into rat protein in vivo and interferes with the use of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in cells.
