Acetylcholine esterase

Acetylcholinesterase is the enzyme responsible for the regular functioning of the signal transmissions of the nervous system and muscles. Acetylcholine must be removed from the environment after the completion of the process in order to prevent continuous transmission. The enzyme that controls this process is acetylcholine esterase by hydrolysing acetylcholine. Pseudocholinesterase plays a role in the breakdown of choline ester-type drugs (such as succincholine and mivacurium) in anesthesia and similar applications. The deficiency may only be hereditary.
Interpretation:This enzyme is a neurotransmitter found in the lymph nodes of the motor system of internal organs and located in different parts of the central nervous system. If this enzyme is reduced in the brain, it causes Alzheimer’s disease. Paralysis may also occur. An excess of this enzyme may cause tremors. When succinylcholine and mivacurium are used in anesthesia, prolonged apnea (prolonged respiratory arrest time) might result if there is a hereditary defect in the synthesis of pseudocholinesterase enzyme.
