Cholinesterases were detected in protoscolices of Echinococcus granulosus spectrophotometrically and electrophoretically. To characterize these activities as acetylcholinesterases or pseudocholinesterases, BW284C51 and the organophosphate anthelmintic Neguvón® were assayed as specific inhibitors of acetylcholinesterases, while Iso-OMPA was employed as specific inhibitor of pseudocholinesterases. We concluded that these Cholinesterase (ChE) activities would be considered as possible targets in
