The copper ion is the component of Basic Copper Sulphate with toxicological implications. Copper ions appear to bind to functional groups of protein molecules in fungi and algae and cause protein denaturation, producing cell damage and leakage. Protein components that act as binding sites are sulfide groups, phosphate (thiol), carboxyls, and imidazoles.

In mollusks, copper sulfate disrupts surface epithelial function and peroxidase enzymes. Copper is an essential nutrient. The acute toxicity of copper-containing pesticides is not attributed to systemic toxicity but to the efforts of the body to equilibrate copper concentrations. Copper plays a role in oxidative stress. It has the potential to act as a catalyst in the formation of free radicals but it also plays a role in reducing reactive oxygen species.9 Copper in the body primarily exists bound to proteins.

Ingestion of copper sulfate irritates the digestive system and may cause emesis, which may limit toxicity. Tissue corrosion, shock, and death may occur after exposure to large doses of copper sulfate. Damage to blood cells, liver and kidney has also been reported. Sheep can be particularly sensitive to products containing copper sulfate, possibly due to inefficient copper excretion.
