Mclsaak and Koelle (1959) showed that transmission across vegetative ganglia may be facilitated by using not only a tertiary inhibitor, but also by using a quaternary inhibitor that inhibits "external" ChE alone, while leaving the intracellular enzyme fully active.

The predatory molluscs may make use of these poisons to immobilize their prey. Recently dihydromurexine was found in some molluscs (Roseghini, 1971).
