Title Effects of the organophosphorus and carbamate insecticides on the lipid metabolism
Bibliographic information May 1982, Vol.31, No.1, p.1-6. Illus. 19 ref.
Abstract The in vitro effects of the insecticides chlorfenvinphos, EPN, fenitrothion, mecarbam, and carbaryl on serum pseudocholinesterase, nonspecific esterase, serum lipoprotein lipase, adipose tissue lipase and epinephrine-induced lipolysis were investigated. A dose-dependent inhibition of serum nonspecific esterase as well as serum pseudocholinesterase was found for these insecticides. Serum lipoprotein lipase, adipose tissue lipase and epinephrine-induced lipolysis were inhibited by 10-3M of carbaryl, fenitrothion and chlorfenvinphos.
