Inhibition of cholinesterase has attracted much attention recently because of its potential for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. In this work, the anticholinesterase activities of plant oils were investigated using Ellman's colorimetric method. The results indicate that essential oils obtained...

Potassium K2P ('leak') channels conduct current across the entire physiological voltage range and carry leak or 'background' currents that are, in part, time- and voltage-independent. K2P2.1 channels (i.e., TREK-1, KCNK2) are highly expressed in excitable tissues, where they play a...

Citronellol (CT) is a monoterpenoid alcohol present in the essential oil of many medicinal plants, such as Cymbopogon citratus. We evaluated the antinociceptive effects of CT on orofacial nociception in mice and investigated the central pathway involved in the effect....
