Effect of pyrethroids on carbohydrate metabolic pathways in common carp, Cyprinus carpio.

The results indicated a steady decrease in SDH activity with a concomitant increase in G6PD activity, which indicated inhibition of SDH at mitochondrial level and an enhancement of an alternative pathway of carbohydrate metabolism as a biochemical adaptation to overcome the toxic stress.


Urban consumers are at a risk of purchasing fresh fruits because of higher levels of residues, beyond the MRL as defined by the FAO/WHO, and grapes committee.

Physical properties that influence the environmental disposition and subsequently affect bioavailability of the compounds in water, soil, air, produce, and nontarget species are also instrumental in determining the impact of current and future synthetic pyrethroid insecticides.

Aerobic metabolism and adsorption of pyrethroid insecticide imiprothrin in soil

Imiprothrin, a unique type of pyrethroid having an imidazolidinyl ring in its alcohol moiety, was rapidly degraded in two aerobic U.S. soils. The half-lives of biologically active trans isomer were

HPLC determination of flumethrin, deltamethrin, cypermethrin, and cyhalothrin residues in the milk and blood of lactating dairy cows.

A procedure to determine residue concentrations of synthetic pyrethroid insecticides in the milk and blood of lactating dairy cows was developed and was reproducible and sensitive.



Synthetic insecticide with a new order of activity

WE describe a new insecticide, related to the pyrethrins, and considerably more active than any other available compound, of whatever class (LD50 about 0.0003 µg per insect, equivalent to about 0.03

A gas chromatographic determination of permethrin isomers on peach foliage

Abstract A gas chromatographic (GC) method to determine cis and trans isomers of permethrin, 3‐phenoxybenzyl (‐)‐cis, trans‐3‐(2,2‐dichlorovinyl)‐2,2‐dimethyl‐cyclopropanecarboxylate, is described.
