Abstract:Uptake and persistence of 3 thioaziridines, ENT-61581 (P, P-bis(l-aziridinyl)-N-methylphosphinothioic amide); ENT-61585 (P, P,-bis (l-aziridinyl)-N-methylphosphinothioic amide); and ENT-24916 (tris(l-aziridinyl)phosphine sulfide), which also is known as thiotepa, in pupae of Anopheles albimanus wiedemann were studied by using gas chromatography. Uptake of ENT-61581 was greater than uptake of the other two chemicals. Conversion of the thioaziridines to the corresponding oxygen analogues was observed. Metabolism of the compounds was rapid, and no detectable residues were present 2-3 days after eclosion.
