Example text

It is found at the neuromuscular junction (NMJ), in the autonomic ganglia and at parasympathetic effector organs. The role of the enzyme at these sites is to hydrolyse ACh so terminating its action. ACh binds to and acetylates AChE at a serine group at its esteratic site resulting in hydrolysis of the ACh. The enzyme also binds the quaternary nitrogen of the choline group, at the so-called anionic site, by weak electrostatic forces. All the evidence suggests that AChE is a single gene product in any individual human or vertebrate animal although the catalytic domain can be associated with different Cterminal peptides.

Firstly, inhibition of the enzyme tends to be more long lasting and less rapidly reversed by reactivation (see below) than that of erythrocyte AChE, especially in humans (Reiner, 1971; Skrinjaric-Spoljar et al, 1973; Worek et al, 1999), although there are exceptions (Hinz et al, 1998). As a result the degree of inhibition of plasma BuChE activity can be a useful marker of exposure. Secondly, in the event of a subject undergoing a surgical procedure in the aftermath of substantial OP exposure, suxamethonium apnoea may occur.
