In summary, it can be said that advances have been made in understanding the range and significance of monooxygenase reactions involving insecticides in both target and non-target species and that some specific aspects emerge that should command the attention of insecticide toxicologists and others in the immediate future. The role of co-oxidation of insecticides during prostaglandin synthesis has just emerged as an issue but, if we can extrapolate from other xenobiotics (126), we can predict… CONTINUE READING
