Description

General description

Rotenone is a contact insecticide and a slow stomach poison, extremely potent against many insects. It is widely used against Varroa Jacobsoni mite, affecting colonies of honey bees.

Application

Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.

Rotenone may be used as an analytical reference standard for the quantification of the analyte in raw honey samples and biological samples using different chromatography techniques.

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.
