Assessment of erythrocyte acetylcholine esterase activities in painters.

Khan MI, Mahdi AA, Islam N, Rastogi SK, Negi MP - Indian J Occup Environ Med (2009)

Bottom Line: BLL were determined using a graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometer.The results showed that BLL were 7.7 times higher in the painters as compared with that of the control group.The marked reduction observed in both RBC and plasma AChE activity may account for disruption of cholinergic function and result in neurotoxicity among the painters.

Figure 0001: (A) Best-fit regression between blood Pb and plasma AChE (B) Best-fit regression between blood Pb and RBC AChE

Mentions: Figure 1 shows best-fit regression graphs of RBC and plasma AChE activities with BLL. RBC AChE shows higher affinity with BLL of painters than plasma AChE.
