Abstract An evaluation of the toxic effects of three organophosphates; monocrotophos, dimethoate and methyl parathion on female reproduction was made by biochemical estimations of cytoplasmic and membrance bound proteins, lipids, phospholipids and cholesterol in the rat ovaries after treatment with their low residual level doses (LD50 1/8-1/5) to three groups of six rats each for 90 days. All the three pesticides caused degenerative changes in the ovaries as evidenced by a significant decrease in the concentration of cytoplasmic as well as membrane bound proteins, total lipids, phospholipids and cholesterol. The observations are thus indicative of the reproductive toxicity caused by organophosphates at cellular and molecular level in the ovaries of rats.
