Because these phosphatases are involved in the functional dynamics of hepatocystic cytoskeletons, their inhibition causes a disarrangement of the cell cytoskeleton, causing the death of these cells, leading to intrahepatic hemorrhage and sometimes causing death (Carmichael, 1992; Mackintosh et al., 1990; Wickstrom et al., 1995).
