MedKoo CAT#: 581245

CAS#: 12122-67-7

Description: Zineb is an agricultural fungicide of the dithiocarbamate class. It has relatively low toxicity and there is little evidence of human injury from exposure. Oxidative stress is one of the major factors leading to Zineb-induced disorders. Zineb did not change the activity of any of superoxide dismutases. The activity of catalase (CAT) was reduced only by Zineb.
