Synaptic remodeling at the skeletal neuromuscular junction of acetylcholinesterase knockout mice and its physiological relevance.

Abstract

Acute inhibition of synaptic acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is fatal to normal animals, but AChE-knockout mice (AChE-/-) expressing normal levels of butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) could live to adulthood without AChE expression. The present study was undertaken to determine whether compensatory mechanisms occur in the mutant that allow an effective neuromuscular… (More)
