The effect of a single oral 750 mg/kg dose of tri-o-cresyl phosphate (TOCP) on the endogenous phosphorylation of brain and spinal cord proteins was assessed in hens during the development of and recovery from delayed neurotoxicity. Crude membrane and cytosolic fractions were prepared from the brains and spinal cords of control and TOCP-treated hens at 1, 7, 14, 21, 35, and 55 days after treatment. Brain and spinal cord protein phosphorylation with (gamma-32P)ATP was analyzed by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), autoradiography, and microdensitometry. TOCP administration conferred calcium and calmodulin dependence on the phosphorylation of a few brain cytosolic proteins and caused an increase in the phosphorylation of a number of other cytosolic and membrane proteins.
