DDT or dieldrin or 2,4,5 T administered to male mice caused significant reductions in the assimilation of androgens by sex accessory organs. DDT or dieldrin altered the metabolism of testosterone in the prostrate gland and in the liver. DDT-3H administration led to the detection of significant amounts of tritium in male reproductive organs. Unlike the organochlorine-type pesticides, neither carbaryl nor parathion administration altered androgen metabolism. The administration of carbaryl-14C led to detectable amounts of radioactivity in several organs of reproduction including the seminal vesicles, prostate gland and testes. The fungicide thiophanate and thiophante-methyl had no affect upon spermatogenesis or upon the metabolism of androgens.
