Título The value of enzyme activity changes in assessing chlorinated cyclodiene pesticide toxicity
Título original Dynamika zmien enzýmovej aktivity pri hodnotení toxicity pesticídov na báze chlórovaných cyklodienových zlúčenín [en checo]
Información bibliográfica Jan. 1972, Vol.24, No.1, p.3-7. 18 ref.
Resumen Dieldrin and aldrin in an oil solution were administered per os, at a rate of 7 and 12mg/kg body weight per day for 4 weeks, to 2 groups of rats and at a rate of 40mg/kg (2/3 of the LD50) in a single dose to a third group. In each case there was an increase in glutamic pyruvic transaminase and serum aldolase. Maximum activity was observed 72h following administration of the single dose and the 7th day following administration of repeated doses. After 28 days, enzyme activity had returned to normal. On the basis of these results, the author considers that glutamic pyruvic transaminase and serum aldolase activity may be employed as a useful criterion for evaluating the acute and sub-acute toxicity of the substances in question.
