Effects of Neostigmine Methylsulfate on Enzyme Activity of Acetylcholinesterase in Rat Serum, Plasma, Muscle and Liver in vivo
AbstractThis study was designed to investigate the effects of neostigmine methylsulfate on enzyme activity of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in rat serum, plasma, muscle and liver were investigated in vivo. Twelve
Sprague-Dawley Albino male rats, weighing 150-200 g were housed in two groups, each group containing six rats. A single dose (0.05 mg/kg) of neostigmine methylsulfate was injected intramuscularly to the treatment
rats. Control rats were given only the same amount of physiological saline. Blood samples for enzyme activity were obtained by cardiac puncture under ether anesthesia one, three, and six hours after the treatment. The tissues were dissected six hours after the treatment. The present study indicated that neostigmine methylsulfate possessed an inhibitory effect on AChE activity in serum, plasma, muscle and liver with the elapse of time. However, the greatest inhibition was found six hours after the injection.
