    Abstract:
    Halothane exposure over the cultured cells (100 and 1,000 ppm) caused a disruption of the pattern of actin distribution in both fibroblasts and neuroblastoma cells. Neuroblastoma cells exposed to halothane also lost microspikes; however, neurite elongation was not affected by halothane. The present study suggests that halothane induces the functional disruption of actin, resulting in an interference of normal neural development in vivo.
