Diazinon CAS#: 333-41-5

Diazinon is a non-systemic organophosphate insecticide formerly used to control cockroaches, silverfish, ants, and fleas in residential, non-food buildings. Diazinon functions as the inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase (AChE), which breaks down the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) into [choline] and an acetate group. The inhibition of the AChE causes an abnormal accumulation of ACh in the synaptic cleft. However, recent studies have shown that diazinon and other kinds of organophosphate can cause neural toxicity through causing oxidative stress in the neural cells.
