Choline acetyltransferase (CAT) and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activities were measured in spinal cord homogenates from rabbits with aluminum-induced neurofibrillary degeneration and a group of saline-treated, age-matched controls. All aluminum-treated animals showed neurofibrillary changes in the spinal cord, but CAT and AChE activities were not(More)
Eight novel methylcarbamates, derivates of ferrocenylketoximes and aldoximes, and ferrocenyl-p-hydroxyphenylaldimine were prepared. They are the first carbamates in the field of ferrocene derivatives. Their anticholinesterase activity was tested and found to fall in the range of 10(-4) through 10(-6) M (I50). The correlation between the activity of the(More)
Regional distribution of choline acetyltransferase (CAT) and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in seventeen regions of the rabbit CNS has been determined by means of the cation exchange radiometric method. A significant correlation has been found between the activities of AChE and CAT which allows computation of their potencies. A comparison between activities of(More)
