In isolated single neurone or in whole ganglia preparation, SnCl2 caused a decrease in the acetylcholine-induced inward current in a dose-dependent way. Threshold concentration was 0.1 mkM and saturated at 5 mkM SnCl2. After 10-min. pre-treatment with SnCl2 the effect was more obvious (by 20%) than after 3-min pre-treatment. Sn(CH3)2 decreased the amplitude of Ach-induced current similarly to the inorganic Sn. The effect of Sn(CH3)2 was irreversible. The findings support earlier data that the agonist-activated channels are important targets for toxic metals. Direct action upon neuronal membrane seems to be an important event in modulation of synaptic transmission.
