We can conclude that the mechanism of action of parathion and malathion occurs probably through the inhibition of AchE, the enzyme responsible for the hydrolysis of Ach at cholinergic synapses (5,6) as it occurs with eserine treatment.
Eserine, parathion, and malathion are cholinesterase inhibitors responsible for the hydrolysis of body choline esters, including acetylcholine at cholinergic synapses.
These findings suggest that TDE possibly elevates the endogenous ACh level at the cholinergic synapses in hippocampal circuits.
