Abstract : A manometric method was used to evaluate the cholinesterasic activity of rat's tibialis anterior and diaphragm muscles. Skeletal muscle homogenates of 100 mg and acetylcholine at 0.005 M have been shown to be the optimal concentrations for the evaluation of enzymatic activity. The cholinesterase activity of tibialis muscle can be related entirely to acetylcholinesterase, since no measurable hydrolytic activity towards benzoylcholine could be demonstrated. (Author)
