Comparative presynaptic neurochemical changes in rat striatum following exposure to chlorpyrifos or parathion.

Abstract

Organophosphorus pesticides (OPs) exert acute toxicity through inhibition of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in target tissues. Previous studies in our laboratory have demonstrated, however, that dosages of the OPs chlorpyrifos (CPF) or parathion (PS), which cause similar degrees of brain AChE inhibition in adult male rats, can produce marked differences in… (More)
