    Hypothermia in homeotherms significantly affects the neurotransmitter systems of the brain, including the cholinergic system. The function of the brain cholinergic system during prolonged moderate hypothermia is not known yet. We studied the effects of moderate hypothermia of various durations on the activity and kinetic parameters of synaptic acetylcholinesterase in rat brain. Immediately after body temperature decrease to 30°C, the efficiency of synaptic acetylcholinesterase catalysis significantly increases due to changes in both the maximum rate of reaction (Vmax; the rate of reaction when the enzyme is saturated with substrate) and Michaelis constant (Km). However, in the dynamics of prolonged hypothermia (1-3 h), it decreases to a level of intact animals, which was associated with normalization of the kinetic parameters of the enzyme. The detected changes in the kinetic parameters of the enzyme are compensatory and can be associated with both its reversible post-translational modifications and changes in the annular lipids. © 2023.
