Objective: Pesticides have been used in agriculture to enhance food production by eradicating undesired insects and controlling disease vectors. Malathion is one of the most widely used organophosphate pesticides. However, it has been postulated that organophosphate pesticides lead to oxidative stress through formation of excessive reactive oxygen species and disrupting the antioxidant defense systems.
