I have suggested merging bioallethrin into this article because the text of bioallethrin suggests it is the same thing, but I'm not sure. Anyone know? -- Ed (Edgar181) 23:22, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
According to , bioallethrin is a mixture of two stereomers, while allethrin is a mixture of all eight stereomers of what this article calls "allethrin I". --ἀνυπόδητος (talk) 14:34, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Is the author sure that the cats' susceptibility is due to lack of glucuronidase? I would think glucuronosyl transferase would be the dysfunctional or non-functional enzyme in this case. Please see the following reference for details on this reasoning: ^ Court MH and Greenblatt DJ (2000). "Molecular genetic basis for deficient acetaminophen glucuronidation by cats: UGT1A6 is a pseudogene, and evidence for reduced diversity of expressed hepatic UGT1A isoforms". Pharmacogenetics. 10 (4): 355–69. DOI:10.1097/00008571-200006000-00009. PMID10862526. I also agree that a citation is important here. Vanwa71 (talk) 09:24, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
Yes, UGT is a likely enzyme in this context; I've changed it in the artice. Thanks for your reference; I suppose it does not mention allethrins? --ἀνυπόδητος (talk) 16:24, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
The title of the quoted research article seems not to be relevant to this article. The section on cat toxicity should either be deleted or greatly expanded to discuss other types of animals such as marine invertebrates and better more general references should be found. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jaredroach (talk • contribs) 05:01, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
