Inhibition and aging of neuropathy target esterase by the stereoisomers of a phosphoramidate related to methamidophos.

Discrepancies in the aging reaction between neuropathy target esterase (NTE) inhibited in vitro and in vivo by racemic mixtures of O-alkyl O-2,5-dichlorophenyl phosphoramidates have been observed. It suggested the existence of differences in the interactions (inhibition and aging) between NTE and each stereoisomers of the above mentioned compounds. In order… CONTINUE READING
