Aldicarb - CAS 116-06-3

Aldicarb(CAT: I000583) is a carbamate insecticide commonly used for pest control. It acts as a cholinesterase inhibitor, meaning it blocks the activity of the enzyme cholinesterase, which is responsible for breaking down acetylcholine in the synapse. By inhibiting cholinesterase, aldicarb prevents the normal breakdown of acetylcholine, leading to an accumulation of this neurotransmitter in the synaptic cleft. This accumulation disrupts the normal functioning of the nervous system in insects, ultimately resulting in their death.
