  ►  Mechanism of Action :   The primary mechanism of action of BZ is thought to be inhibition of microtubule polymerization by binding to Beta-tubulin . The selective toxicity of these agents against helminths results from their higher affinity for parasite -tubulin than for the same target in higher eukaryotes. A range of other biochemical changes are found in nematodes following BZ exposure, including inhibition of mitochondrial fumarate reductase, reduced glucose transport, and uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation.
