DDT degradation pathway. DDT stands for dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane. DDT is a chemical that began to be used as an insecticide after showing insecticidal action against many insects in very small quantities. It is important to evaluate the negative impact on the environment, and human health studies on the metabolism of DDT have been done in recent years. This pathway consists of 20 compounds and 46 enzyme reactions.
