Abstract
Studies were made of the effects of lethal doses of dieldrin or DDT on the free amino acid pattern of the brains of rats exhibiting severe symptoms of poisoning. Elevated levels of alpha-alanine and gamma-aminobutyrate were noted with dieldrin but not with DDT, indicating a different mode of action of the 2 insecticides.
