In this study, the effect of toxaphene (camphechlor) on ATPase activity in the microsomal fraction of the Unio tumidus's digestive gland was determined. Toxaphene is a man-made mixture consisting of polychlorinated monoterpens, predominantly bornanes. This compound was primarily used as an insecticide, but in 1982 was officially banned because of its… CONTINUE READING
