General description

Rotenone belongs to the retinoid family. It is naturally present in Leguminosa plants and is considered to be cytotoxic. It is commonly used as an insecticide and a pesticide.[96]

Application

Rotenone has been used:
  • to study its effect on cell proliferation
[97]
  • to detect the production of cellular reactive oxygen species
  • [98] in isolated rat forebrain mitochondria[99]
  • to measure mitochondrial enzymatic activity
  • [00]

    Packaging

    1, 5, 10, 25 g in glass bottle

    Biochem/physiol Actions

    Rotenone is an inhibitor of mitochondrial electron transport at nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH):ubiquinone oxidoreductase. It is readily absorbed through the exoskeletons of arthropods, but poorly absorbed cutaneously or from the gastrointestinal tract of mammals. Rotenone acts as a neurotoxic agent which can produce Parkinson-like condition to serve as an animal model for the study of etiology and interventions.
