Abstract

PESTAB. A study was undertaken to determine the effects of alpha-naphthylthiourea (ANTU), a specific acute rodenticide, on ATPases in different tissues. Female Wistar rats were given oral doses of ANTU (10 mg/kg). Erythrocyte membrane, liver microsomes, and kidney microsomes were assayed for (Na+ + K+)-ATPases. Inhibition of (Na+ + K+)-ATPases occurred in erythrocyte membranes and kidney microsomes. There were no effects observed with ATPases activated by 2,4-dinitrophenol, magnesium or calcium from liver and kidney mitochondria. There was substantial reversal of inhibition by phosphatidyl choline, phosphatidyl ethanolamine, and adenosine triphosphate.
