The metabolism of 1,2-3H-testosterone in vitro was studied in prostate glands and livers of rats and mice treated with different pesticides including dieldrin and parathion. The metabolism of 1,2-3H-testosterone (T-3H) in vitro by mouse anterior prostate glands or hepatic microsomes has been studied after the oral administration of dieldrin (2.5 mg/kg daily x 5 or 10) and/or parathion (1.3,2.6, or 5.2 mg/kg daily x 5 or 10). T-3H metabolism in the prostate was unaffected by the various treatment regimens. Dieldrin (10 days) caused some reduction in the microsomal production of androstenedione-3H or dihydrotestosterone-3H. Only treatment regimes with dieldrin stimulated hepatic testosterone hydroxylases; parathion alone had no effect. This study revealed that dieldrin and parathion can interact and produce biological effects different from those caused by either pesticide alone.
