Disease relevance of Erunit


High impact information on Erunit


Chemical compound and disease context of Erunit

  • Ecological toxicity of acetochlor and excessive urea, in both their single and joint effects, on earthworm Esisenia foelide was thus studied using the soil-culture method [8].

Biological context of Erunit

  • Thus, with 12 pesticides that mode of action judgments can be made, 11 disrupt thyroid-pituitary homeostasis only; no chemical is mutagenic only; and acetochlor may have both antithyroid and some mutagenic activity [9].
  • Rats treated with 2000 mg/kg acetochlor had normal testicular and epididymal pathology and normal sperm numbers and sperm motility at the critical third sampling period [10].
  • Daphnia fecundity declined with exposure to toxaphene, and daphnid growth rates were reduced by acetochlor exposure [11].
  • Simple first-order kinetics (Model 1) adequately described acetochlor persistence in Hamilton clay loam soil (Humic Hapludull, Illuvial Spadic) at the high application rate, but overestimated it at the low application rate [12].
  • The tumours were not life-threatening, they did not metastasize, and no DNA damage was induced in the nasal cells of rats maintained on a diet containing the MTD of acetochlor for either 1 or 18 weeks (comet assay) [2].

Anatomical context of Erunit


Associations of Erunit with other chemical compounds


Gene context of Erunit

  • This change in TR ratios is recapitulated with 10nM acetochlor in R. catesbeiana tadpole brains during prometamorphosis, a period in which THs are endogenously produced [18].
  • Interaction of acetochlor with estrogen receptor in the rat uterus. Acetochlor--possible endocrine modulator [19]?
