Effects of diisopropyl fluorophosphate on muscarinic-M1-receptors and on receptor-mediated responsiveness of the phosphatidyl-inositol system in the cerebral cortex of rats.

Abstract

The effects of acute and repeated treatments with an anticholinesterase (anti-ChE) compound, diisopropylfluorophosphate (DFP) on M1-acetylcholine receptor (M1-AChRs) density and on M1-mediated breakdown of inositol phospholipids were studied in the cerebral cortex of rats. The DFP doses induced an about 75% inhibition of cortical ChE 48 hr after the last… (More)
