The most employed insecticides for indoor and agriculture purposes belong to carbamates, pyrethroid or organophosphates. The chemical structures of these three groups correspond to carbamic, carboxylic and triphosphoric esters. Technical monographs suggest that the hydrolysis of ester bonds of carbamates and pyrethroids plays an important role in the detoxification of these compounds. However, detailed studies about enzymes hydrolysing carbamates and pyrethroids in vertebrates are not available… CONTINUE READING
