Transglutaminase 2 (TGase 2) is a multifunctional calcium dependent enzyme that catalyzes protein modifications. TGase 2 is essential in neuronal cell differentiation and it has been reported that certain organophosphates are able to inhibit this process, and the organophosphate phenyl saligenin compound also disrupts TGase 2 activity. It has also been shown that the organophosphates chlorpyrifos (CPF) and chlorpyrifos oxon (CPFO), which cause developmental neurotoxicity, provoke several changes in differentiating rat C6 glioma cells at different levels. The aims of this thesis were to analyse the effects of CPF and CPFO on the TGases present in differentiating rat C6 glioma cells, to develop a new method for the purification of TGase 2 from guinea pig liver, to study possible direct interactions between TGase 2 and esterase inhibitors and to analyze a possible pathway for the externalisation of TGase 2.
