The synthetic alpha-cyano-phenoxybenzyl-containing pyrethroid insecticides act on the CNS of vertebrates and show a species-selective toxicity in the order fish greater than amphibians much greater than mammals greater than birds. Concentrations of [14C]cis-cypermethrin in the brains of representative members of each of these classes of chordates were measured at toxic signs (an onset of hyperactivity followed by seizures and loss of balance/equilibrium) as an indicator of target organ… CONTINUE READING
