Effects of trichlorfon on malondialdehyde and antioxidant system in human erythrocytes.
Toxicol In Vitro 2007; 21(8):1538-44TV

Abstract

Organophosphorus insecticides may induce oxidative stress leading to generation of free radicals and alteration in antioxidant system. The aim of this study was to examine the potency of trichlorfon, an organophosphate insecticide, to induce oxidative stress response in human erythrocytes in vitro. For this purpose trichlorfon solutions in different concentrations and erythrocyte solutions were incubated at 37 degrees C for 60 min. At the end of the incubation time, malondialdehyde (MDA), an end product of lipid peroxidation, total glutathione, reduced glutathione (GSH) levels, activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) enzymes were determined by spectrophotometric methods. Trichlorfon increased MDA formation depended on the concentration. On the other hand, decreases in the GSH-Px activity, GSH levels and increases in the total glutathione levels, SOD and CAT activities were seen in the studied concentrations. The present findings indicate that the in vitro toxicity of trichlorfon may be associated with oxidative stress.
