Hepatic subcellular localization of cresylbenzodioxaphosphorin oxide (CBDP)-sensitive soman binding sites.

Abstract

The toxicity of the organophosphorus poison soman (pinacolylmethylphosphonofluoridate) is attributable to its irreversible inhibition of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. In addition, soman binds irreversibly to a number of noncholinesterase tissue binding sites which appear to be its major means of in vivo detoxification. This study was conducted to… (More)
