Nonenzymic Effects of Pesticides on Membranes
The title of this presentation is too general, for I shall only describe our findings on DDT in synthetic membranes. The intent of the DDT work is, however, not only to satisfy our curiosity about DDT’s action at the molecular level, but also to explore ways to study nonenzymic effects in membranes for toxicants in general.
