Acetylcholinesterase (ACHE, AChE)
Description:
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE, EC.3.1.1.7.) is an enzyme located in the postsynaptic membrane and in the muscle endplates, where it hydrolyses the neurotransmitter acetylcholin. AChE from brain is a tetramer (G4-AChE) with a molecular mass of 320kD, AChE from erythrocytes is a dimer (G2-AChE) with a molecular mass of 170kD. Detection of higher levels of AChE in amniotic fluid can indicate fetal malformations such as neural tube defects.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:2000
Western Blot: 1-3ug/ml, observed in human brain (cerebellum) lysates on ~70kD bands
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
