Description

Analysis Note

The activity obtained using acetylcholine as substrate is 30-100 times that obtained with butyrylcholine, using acetylcholinesterase from electric eel.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Major degradative enzyme for acetylcholine in vivo. Converts acetylcholine + H2O to choline + acetic acid.

Other Notes

Activity believed to be membrane (stroma) bound.

Unit Definition

One unit will hydrolyze 1.0 μmole of acetylcholine to choline and acetate per min at pH 8.0 at 37 °C.

Physical form
