Scope note: Fármacos que inhiben las colinesterasas. El neurotransmisor ACETILCOLINA es hidrolizado rápidamente por estas enzimas y, en consecuencia, es inactivado. Cuando se inhiben las colinesterasas, se potencia la acción de la acetilcolina liberada endógenamente en las sinapsis colinérgicas. Los inhibidores de la colinesterasas se usan mucho clínicamente porque potencian los impulsos colinérgicos destinados al tubo digestivo y la vejiga urinaria, los ojos y los músculos esqueléticos. También se usan por sus efectos en el corazón y en el sistema nervioso central.

Scope note: Drugs that inhibit cholinesterases. The neurotransmitter ACETYLCHOLINE is rapidly hydrolyzed, and thereby inactivated, by cholinesterases. When cholinesterases are inhibited, the action of endogenously released acetylcholine at cholinergic synapses is potentiated. Cholinesterase inhibitors are widely used clinically for their potentiation of cholinergic inputs to the gastrointestinal tract and urinary bladder, the eye, and skeletal muscles; they are also used for their effects on the heart and the central nervous system.
