The present investigation was undertaken to study short and long term effects of aluminium on acetylcholinestrase activity of different areas of rat brain.
Intraperitoneal administration of 2 mg/kg aluminium as AlCl3 daily for 15 to 60 days reduced acetylcholinestrase activity of cerebellum controls from 16.3 0.7 to 14.2 0.9, mid-brain from 15.8 0.7 to 12.3 0.7 and brain cortex from 8.7 0.7 to 1.0 0.4 mole enzyme/mg protein/min respectively (p < 0.05). Aluminium (10 mg/kg) administration daily for 15 and 30 days reduced acetylcholinestrase activity of cerebellum controls from 16.2 0.8 to 12.1 1.0, mid-brain from 15.8 0.4 to 9.6 0.5 and brain cortex from 8.4 0.6 to 5.4 0.4 mole enzyme/mg protein/min respectively (p < 0.05). Serum aluminium of aluminium treated animals was elevated significantly (p < 0.05). The neurotoxicity of aluminium has been considered in the discussion.

Keywords: Aluminium, acetylcholinestrase, neurological disorders.
