Abstract

A competitive enayme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was developed for the quantitative detection of fenpropathrin [(RS)-α-cyano-3-phenoxybenzyl-2,2,3,3-tetramethylcyclopropanecarboxylate]. Polyclonal antisera were isolated from rabbits immunized with two different fenpropathrin hapten conjugates. One hapten contained an amino function; the other contained a carboxyl group for conjugation to carrier proteins. Mollusk hemocyanins, thyroglobulin, and fetuin were used as carrier proteins. The antisera varied greatly in their affinities for fenpropathrin. A homologous assay system using the coating antigen format was the most sensitive. The IC50 for fenpropathrin was 20 μg/L, and the lower detection limit was 2.5 μg/L. Pyrethroids, such as phenothrin, permethrin, resmethrin, fenvalerate, deltamethrin, cyfluthrin, and cypermethrin, and the pyrethroid metabolites, 3-phenoxybenzoic acid and fenpropathrin acid, did not cross-react significantly in this assay. Ten percent acetone or methanol and a pH of 4 were determined to be optimum assay conditions. Various cationic, anionic, and nonionic detergents had no significant effect on the assay.
