N-Acetyl-L-cysteine, a low-molecular weight thiol compound, with two different doses was used to prevent fenthion, an organophosphorus insecticide and acaricide, related oxidative stress in the brain of a model organism, Cyprinus carpio. Fish were exposed to sub-lethal and nominal concentration of fenthion after intraperitoneal injection of 0.5 or 400 mg/kg(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the oxidative stress potential of low-level organophosphate fenthion exposure with the modulatory effect of buthionine sulfoximine in the liver of Cyprinus carpio L. The fish were exposed to 20% of 96-hour LC(50) of fenthion for 24 and 96 hours. Total and oxidized glutathione, thiobarbituric acid reactive(More)
ABSTRACT Although its usage is partially banned in developed countries, organophosphate (OP) pesticide diazinon finds extensive agricultural application in our country (Turkey). This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of diazinon on total glutathione (tGSH), GSH-related enzymes, cholinesterase (ChE) enzyme activities, and lipid peroxidation in the(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of organophosphorus (OP) pesticide diazinon on acetylcholinesterase (AChE: EC activity and its relationship to lipid peroxidation (LPO) in the brain of a freshwater fish, Oreochromis niloticus. Malondialdehyde (MDA) content was used as biomarker for LPO. Fish were exposed to 1 and 2mg/L sublethal(More)
Effects of diazinon, at different concentrations and exposure times, were investigated in freshwater fish, Cyprinus carpio, to elucidate the possible mode of action on lipid peroxidation together with the inhibitory effect of diazinon on acetylcholinesterase activity and changes in tissue protein levels. Cholinesterase inhibition is considered to be a(More)
