Impairment Of Glutamate Signaling In Mouse Central Nervous System Neurons In Vitro By Tri-O-Cresyl Phosphate (TOCP) At Non-Cytotoxic Concentrations

Occupational and environmental exposure to tri-cresyl phosphates (TCPs) may cause various types of neurotoxicity. Among the TCP isomers, tri-ortho-cresyl phosphate is a well-studied organophosphate (OP) known to cause OP-induced delayed neuropathy (OPIDN). Clinically, OPIDN is characterized by limb paralysis caused by the inhibition of neuropathy target esterase. Like other organophosphates, TOCP may also trigger acute…
