The microsomal monooxygenase
system of liver is concerned with metabolism of xenobiotics.
Recent findings indicate that free radicals species, namely hydroxyethyl radicals are generated during ethanol metabolism by microsomal monooxygenase
system and particularly by the ethanol -inducible form of cytochrome P-450 (CYP2E1) that enhances liver damage by chronic ethanol exposure [4, 5].

Iqbal and Wright (1997) reported that there might be the involvement of microsomal monooxygenases
and / or esterases in resistance to abamectin with a limited evidence of involvement of glutathione-S-transferases.
