A reversible anticholinesterase drug used as a parasympathomimetic which, when used in the eye constricts the pupil. It may be used in solution of 0.25-1% or ointment 0.25-0.50% in the treatment of glaucoma, but because of its side-effects its usage is rare nowadays. It is sometimes combined with pilocarpine. Syn. eserine. See miotics; neostigmine; parasympathomimetic drug.

Gills isolated from the animal contract in response to 5-hydroxytryptamine (5HT), dopamine (DA), and acetyicholine (ACh); but the ACh contraction occurred only if the gills had been pretreated with the cholinesterase inhibitor eserine. The 5HT antagonists cyproheptadine and mianserin blocked the contractile effects of all of the agonists.
The probe was connected to a microinfusion pump (CMA/100 Carnegie Medicine) via a cannula swivel (TCS2-23, Tsumura, Tokyo, Japan) by polyethylene tubing, and the brain was perfused at a constant rate of 2.0 [micro]1/min with a Ringer's solution of the following composition (in mM): NaCl, 125.0; KCl, 3.0; Mg[Cl.sub.2], 1.0; Ca[Cl.sub.2], 1.3; NaH[CO.sub.3], 23.0; eserine sulfate, 0.010 (pH adjusted to 7.4 with 0.1N HCl).
