Genetic analysis of collagen Q: roles in acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase assembly and in synaptic structure and function. (1/406)

Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) occurs in both asymmetric forms, covalently associated with a collagenous subunit called Q (ColQ), and globular forms that may be either soluble or membrane associated. At the skeletal neuromuscular junction, asymmetric AChE is anchored to the basal lamina of the synaptic cleft, where it hydrolyzes acetylcholine to terminate synaptic transmission. AChE has also been hypothesized to play developmental roles in the nervous system, and ColQ is also expressed in some AChE-poor tissues. To seek roles of ColQ and AChE at synapses and elsewhere, we generated ColQ-deficient mutant mice. ColQ-/- mice completely lacked asymmetric AChE in skeletal and cardiac muscles and brain; they also lacked asymmetric forms of the AChE homologue, butyrylcholinesterase. Thus, products of the ColQ gene are required for assembly of all detectable asymmetric AChE and butyrylcholinesterase. Surprisingly, globular AChE tetramers were also absent from neonatal ColQ-/- muscles, suggesting a role for the ColQ gene in assembly or stabilization of AChE forms that do not themselves contain a collagenous subunit. Histochemical, immunohistochemical, toxicological, and electrophysiological assays all indicated absence of AChE at ColQ-/- neuromuscular junctions. Nonetheless, neuromuscular function was initially robust, demonstrating that AChE and ColQ do not play obligatory roles in early phases of synaptogenesis. Moreover, because acute inhibition of synaptic AChE is fatal to normal animals, there must be compensatory mechanisms in the mutant that allow the synapse to function in the chronic absence of AChE. One structural mechanism appears to be a partial ensheathment of nerve terminals by Schwann cells. Compensation was incomplete, however, as animals lacking ColQ and synaptic AChE failed to thrive and most died before they reached maturity.  (+info)

The anticancer prodrug CPT-11 is a potent inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase but is rapidly catalyzed to SN-38 by butyrylcholinesterase. (2/406)

Patients treated with high doses of CPT-11 rapidly develop a cholinergic syndrome that can be alleviated by atropine. Although CPT-11 was not a substrate for acetylcholinesterase (AcChE), in vitro assays confirmed that CPT-11 inhibited both human and electric eel AcChE with apparent K(i)s of 415 and 194 nM, respectively. In contrast, human or equine butyryl-cholinesterase (BuChE) converted CPT-11 to SN-38 with K(m)s of 42.4 and 44.2 microM for the human and horse BuChE, respectively. Modeling of CPT-11 within the predicted active site of AcChE and BuChE corroborated experimental results indicating that, although the drug was oriented correctly for activation, the constraints dictated by the active site gorge were such that CPT-11 would be unlikely to be activated by AcChE.  (+info)

Cholinesterases in neural development: new findings and toxicologic implications. (3/406)

Developing animals are more sensitive than adults to acute cholinergic toxicity from anticholinesterases, including organophosphorus pesticides, when administered in a laboratory setting. It is also possible that these agents adversely affect the process of neural development itself, leading to permanent deficits in the architecture of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Recent observations indicate that organophosphorus exposure can affect DNA synthesis and cell survival in neonatal rat brain. New evidence that acetylcholinesterase may have a direct role in neuronal differentiation provides additional grounds for interest in the developmental toxicity of anticholinesterases. For example, correlative anatomic studies show that transient bursts of acetylcholinesterase expression often coincide with periods of axonal outgrowth in maturing avian, rodent, and primate brain. Some selective cholinesterase inhibitors effectively suppress neurite outgrowth in model systems like differentiating neuroblastoma cells and explanted sensory ganglia. When enzyme expression is altered by genetic engineering, acetylcholinesterase levels on the outer surface of transfected neurons correlate with ability to extend neurites. Certain of these "morphogenic" effects may depend on protein-protein interactions rather than catalytic acetylcholinesterase activity. Nonetheless, it remains possible that some pesticides interfere with important developmental functions of the cholinesterase enzyme family.  (+info)

Failure to confirm a synergistic effect between the K-variant of the butyrylcholinesterase gene and the epsilon4 allele of the apolipoprotein gene in Japanese patients with Alzheimer's disease. (4/406)

To confirm a synergistic effect between the polymorphic K variant of the butyrylcholinesterase (BChE-K) gene and the epsilon4 allele of the apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene in Alzheimer's disease, the frequency of the BChE-K allele was re-examined in a large series of Japanese patients with Alzheimer's disease and controls. Two hundred and three patients with Alzheimer's disease and 288 age and sex matched controls were genotyped by polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism for BChE-K and APOE. No changes were found in the frequency of BChE-K, either in the Alzheimer's disease group as a whole (0.17 v 0.14; p=0.36) or in early (0.16 v 0.16; p=0.98) or late (0.17 v 0.13; p=0.24) onset patients compared with age matched controls. The study failed to confirm the findings of a previous study which found a significantly higher incidence of BChE-K in patients with Alzheimer's disease with APOE epsilon4 allele than in controls. In the Japanese population studied here, there was no association between BChE-K and Alzheimer's disease, nor an interaction between BChE-K and APOE epsilon4 allele.  (+info)

Anticholinesterase effects of huperzine A, E2020, and tacrine in rats. (5/406)

AIM: To compare the anticholinesterase effects of huperzine A (Hup A), E2020, and tacrine in rats. METHODS: Spectrophotometry was used to determine AChE activity in brain and BuChE activity in serum. RESULTS: Following intragastric gavage, Hup A, E2020, and tacrine all produced dose-dependent inhibitions of brain AChE. Oral Hup A exhibited a higher inhibition than E2020 and tacrine. Tacrine was more effective in inhibiting serum BuChE correlated with severe peripheral adverse effects. The BuChE activity was less affected by Hup A and E2020. After a single oral dose of Hup A, a relatively steady state of AChE inhibition produced, which was longer than that after E2020 and tacrine. No change in the cholinesterase inhibition was seen for the 3 drugs following repeated i.g. medications. CONCLUSION: Hup A i.g. exhibited a higher efficacy, a longer duration of action, and a more selective inhibition on AChE than E2020 and tacrine.  (+info)

Effects of synthetic (-)-huperzine A on cholinesterase activities and mouse water maze performance. (6/406)

AIM: To compare the effects of synthetic and natural (-)-huperzine A (Hup A) on cholinesterase and mouse water maze performance. METHODS: Spectrophotometry was used to determine cholinesterase activity. Mouse water maze was used to evaluate nootropic effect. RESULTS: The IC50 of synthetic Hup A for acetylcholinesterase (AChE) of rat cortex and rat erythrocyte membrane determined in vitro were 64.7 (52.6-79.5) and 53.9 (43.6-66.6) nmol.L-1, respectively, and for butyrylcholinesterase of rat serum was 53.6 (44.9-63.8) mumol.L-1. Synthetic Hup A 0.12-0.48 mg.kg-1 ig produced a dose-dependent inhibition of brain AChE in mice. Synthetic Hup A 0.05 mg.kg-1 ig attenuated scopolamine-induced impairment of spatial memory. The efficacy of synthetic Hup A was the same as natural Hup A. CONCLUSION: Synthetic Hup A yielded an in vitro and in vivo pharmacological profile of activities similar to that of natural Hup A.  (+info)

Characteristics of recombinant human butyrylcholinesterase. (7/406)

AIM: To study the biochemical-pharmacological properties of the recombinant human butyrylcholinesterase (rhBChE) and thereby to size up the potential possibility of using it as a detoxifying agent in succinylcholine intoxication. METHODS: CHO-dhfr cells were transfected with plasmids by electroporation. BChE activity was determined colorimetrically by 5, 5'-dithiobis-(2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB) method. Antigenicity was estimated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and Western blot. RESULTS: The maximal expression amounted to 25.83 ng.h-1/10(6) cells. The rhBChE was highly similar to the native human BChE (nhBChE) in terms of its catalytic property, substrate affinity, inhibitor sensitivity, reactivation, stability, and immunoreactivity with anti-nhBChE antibodies. Mice challenged with 1.5 lethal dose of succinylcholine preincubated with rhBChE survived without any symptoms of intoxication. CONCLUSION: The rhBChE and nhBChE exhibit similar biochemical-pharmacological features. It is of potential value in practical use.  (+info)

Inhibitory effects of huperzine B on cholinesterase activity in mice. (8/406)

AIM: To determine the anticholinesterase properties of huperzine B (Hup B) and compare with tacrine in vitro and in vivo. METHODS: Spectrophotometry was used to determine ChE activity. RESULTS: Hup B showed much more selective inhibition to acetylcholinesterase (AChE) than tacrine. The IC50 ratios of Hup B and tacrine for butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE): AChE were 65.8 and 0.54, respectively. Hup B ig exhibited higher efficacy on the inhibition of brain AChE than that of tacrine. Tacrine was more effective in the inhibition of serum BuChE in mice with severe concomitant peripheral adverse effects than Hup B. A single ig dose of Hup B produced steady state of AChE inhibition in 4 h. CONCLUSION: Hup B exhibits higher selectivity and efficacy in the inhibition of AChE, and lower toxicity in mice than tacrine.  (+info)

Butyrylcholinesterase [BuChE (acylcholine acyl hydrolase); EC 3.1.1.8] limits the access of drugs, including tacrine, to other proteins. The atypical BuChE variant, in which Asp70 at the rim of the active site gorge is substituted by glycine, displayed a more drastically weakened interaction with tacrine than with cocaine, dibucaine, succinylcholine, BW284c51 [1,5-bis(4-allyldimethylammoniumphenyl)pentan-3-one dibromide], or alpha-solanine. To delineate the protein domains that are responsible for this phenomenon, we mutated residues within the rim of the active site gorge, the region parallel to the peripheral site in the homologous enzyme acetylcholinesterase [AChE (acetylcholine acetyl hydrolase); EC 3.1.1.7], the oxyanion hole, and the choline-binding site. When expressed in microinjected Xenopus laevis oocytes, all mutant DNAs yielded comparable amounts of immunoreactive protein products. Most mutants retained catalytic activity close to that of wild-type BuChE and were capable of binding ligands
This study sought to investigate the effect of infusions from green tea (|i|Camellia sinensis|/i|) and some citrus peels [shaddock (|i|Citrus maxima|/i|), grapefruit (|i|Citrus paradisi|/i|), and orange (|i|Citrus sinensis|/i|)] on key enzymes relevant to the management of neurodegenerative conditions [monoamine oxidase (MAO) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE)]. The total phenol contents and antioxidant activities as typified by their 2,2′-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzthiazoline-6-sulphonic acid) (ABTS) radicals scavenging abilities, ferric reducing antioxidant properties, and Fe|sup|2+|/sup| chelating abilities were also investigated. Green tea had the highest total phenol (43.3 mg/g) and total flavonoid (16.4 mg/g) contents, when compared to orange [total phenol (19.6 mg/g), total flavonoid (6.5 mg/g)], shaddock [total phenol (16.3 mg/g), total flavonoid (5.2 mg/g)], and grapefruit [total phenol (17.7 mg/g), total flavonoid (5.9 mg/g)].

Four novel bisquaternary aldoxime cholinesterase reactivators differing in their chemical structure were prepared. Afterwards, their biological activity was evaluated for their ability to reactivate acetylcholinesterase (AChE; EC 3.1.1.7) and butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE; EC 3.1.1.8) inhibited by paraoxon. Their reactivation activity was compared with standard reactivators-pralidoxime, obidoxime and HI-6-which are clinically used at present. As it resulted, none of the prepared compounds surpassed obidoxime, which is considered to be the most potent compound if used for reactivation of AChE inhibited by paraoxon. In case of BuChE reactivation, two compounds (K053 and K068) achieved similar results as obidoxime.

The pharmacological function of heroin requires an activation process that transforms heroin into 6-monoacetylmorphine (6-MAM), which is the most active form. The primary enzyme responsible for this activation process in human plasma is butyrylcholinesterase (BChE). The detailed reaction pathway of the activation process via BChE-catalyzed hydrolysis has been explored computationally, for the first time, in this study via molecular dynamics simulation and first-principles quantum mechanical/molecular mechanical free energy calculations. It has been demonstrated that the whole reaction process includes acylation and deacylation stages. The acylation consists of two reaction steps, i.e., the nucleophilic attack on the carbonyl carbon of the 3-acetyl group of heroin by the hydroxyl oxygen of the Ser198 side chain and the dissociation of 6-MAM. The deacylation also consists of two reaction steps, i.e., the nucleophilic attack on the carbonyl carbon of the acyl enzyme intermediate by a water molecule ...
Five mouse anti-human butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) monoclonal antibodies bind tightly to native human BChE with nanomolar dissociation constants. Pairing analysis in the Octet system identified the monoclonal antibodies that bind to overlapping and independent epitopes on human BChE. The nucleotide and amino acid sequences of 4 monoclonal antibodies are deposited in GenBank. Our goal was to determine which of the 5 monoclonal antibodies recognize BChE in the plasma of animals. Binding of monoclonal antibodies 11D8, B2 18-5, B2 12-1, mAb2 and 3E8 to BChE in animal plasma was measured using antibody immobilized on Pansorbin cells and on Dynabeads Protein G. A third method visualized binding by the shift of BChE activity bands on nondenaturing gels stained for BChE activity. Gels were counterstained for carboxylesterase activity. The three methods agreed that B2 18-5 and mAb2 have broad species specificity, but the other monoclonal antibodies interacted only with human BChE, the exception being ...
4B0P: A Step Toward the Reactivation of Aged Cholinesterases -Crystal Structure of Ligands Binding to Aged Human Butyrylcholinesterase
Cholinesterases are among the most efficient enzymes known. They are divided into two groups: acetylcholinesterase, involved in the hydrolysis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, and butyrylcholinesterase of unknown function. Several crystal structures of the former have shown that the active site is located at the bottom of a deep and narrow gorge, raising the question of how substrate and products enter and leave. Human butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) has attracted attention because it can hydrolyze toxic esters such as cocaine or scavenge organophosphorus pesticides and nerve agents. Here we report the crystal structures of several recombinant truncated human BChE complexes and conjugates and provide a description for mechanistically relevant non-productive substrate and product binding. As expected, the structure of BChE is similar to a previously published theoretical model of this enzyme and to the structure of Torpedo acetylcholinesterase. The main difference between the experimentally ...

Organophosphorus nerve agents irreversibly inhibit cholinesterases. Phosphylation of the catalytic serine can be reversed by the mean of powerful nucleophiles like oximes. But the phosphyl adduct can undergo a rapid spontaneous reaction leading to an aged enzyme, i.e., a conjugated enzyme that is no longer reactivable by oximes. One strategy to regain reactivability is to alkylate the phosphylic adduct. Specific alkylating molecules were synthesized and the crystal structures of the complexes they form with soman-aged human butyrylcholinesterase were solved. Although the compounds bind in the active site gorge of the aged enzyme, the orientation of the alkylating function appears to be unsuitable for efficient alkylation of the phosphylic adduct. However, these crystal structures provide key information to design efficient alkylators of aged-butyrylcholinesterase and specific reactivators of butyrylcholinesterase. A step toward the reactivation of aged cholinesterases - Crystal structure of ...
Mouse Monoclonal Anti-Butyrylcholinesterase/BCHE Antibody (3E8) - BSA Free. Validated: ELISA. Tested Reactivity: Human. 100% Guaranteed.
Equipment for fast and accurate detection of organophosphate nerve agents is developed and tested. The method is based on the spectrophotometric monitoring of the enzyme activity of butyrylcholinesterase after its contact with air in a special absorption unit (a "scrubber") developed for the purpose. The scrubber was made from a glass tube filled with glass beads (diam. 3 mm) and filled with approx. 5 ml of butyrylcholinesterase in a phosphate buffer of pH 7.4. The air sample was bubbled through this solution for 20 s at a flow rate of 80 l hour-1. Thereafter 8 microl of the enzyme solution were aspirated into the micro-SIA-LOV analyzer and the activity of the enzymes were evaluated by using Ellmans reagent, i.e. 2.5 mmol l-1 butyrylthiocholine iodide and 0.25 mmol 5,5-dithiobis (2-nitrobenzoic acid). The absorbance of the coloured reaction product was measured at 412 nm after the reaction time of 60 s. The residue of the absorption liquid was washed away from the absorber and the system was ...

The military has endorsed a treatment protocol for possible nerve gas exposure that includes prophylactic PB at 30 mg/kg t.i.d. for 7 consecutive days. This treatment protocol is designed to produce 20% to 30% inhibition of plasma BuChE activity, a convenient index of AChE activity. We have attempted to devise a treatment regimen in rats that mimics some of the features of the military protocol. Delivery of PB at 0.018 mg/l in the drinking water produced 15% to 20% inhibition of BuChE activity in rats. Blood samples were obtained 2 h after the onset of the light phase. Inasmuch as rats drink approximately 80% of their water during the dark phase, it is likely that the levels of inhibition that we obtained represent steady-state rather than peak values. Moreover, rats exhibited some of the mild signs of cholinergic overstimulation, such as excessive lacrimation and diarrhea, signs also exhibited by troops during the PGW (Cook et al., 1992). However, drinking-related behaviors appeared to be ...

Dibucaine, also known as cinchocaine, is an amino amide local anesthetic. When administered to humans intravenously, it is capable of inhibiting the plasma cholinesterase (butyrylcholinesterase) enzyme. The dibucaine number is used to differentiate individuals who have substitution mutations (point mutations) of the enzymes gene, resulting in decreased enzyme function. Plasma cholinesterase is also known as butyrylcholinesterase, in part because once an individual is given butyrylcholine intravenously, the enzyme converts it to the products butyric acid and choline. This tetrameric enzyme is responsible for the metabolism of a number of substances, including amino ester local anesthetics and succinylcholine, which it hydrolyses in two stages to succinyl monocholine and choline, then to succinic acid and a second molecule of choline. Dibucaine inhibits normal butyrylcholinesterase activity, reducing the ability to convert butyrylcholine to its byproducts. The extent of the catalysis can be ...
Photochromic cholinesterase inhibitors were obtained from cis-1,2-α-dithienylethene-based compounds by incorporating one or two aminopolymethylene tacrine groups. All target compounds are potent acetyl- (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) inhibitors in the nanomolar concentration range. Compound 11b bearing an octylene linker exhibited interactions with both the catalytic active site (CAS) and the peripheral anionic site (PAS) of AChE. Yet upon irradiation with light, the mechanism of interaction varied from one photochromic form to another, which was investigated by kinetic studies and proved "photoswitchable". The AChE-induced β-amyloid (Aβ) aggregation assay gave further experimental support to this finding: Aβ1-40 aggregation catalyzed by the PAS of AChE might be inhibited by compound 11b in a concentration-dependent manner and seems to occur only with one photochromic form. Computational docking studies provided potential binding modes of the compound. Docking studies and molecular ...

In this study, we focused on four glial proteins that are abundant in amyloid plaques and/or that are known to interact with Abeta: alpha1-antichymotrypsin (ACT), interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta), S100beta, and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE). We examined the ability of these proteins to activate rat cortical astrocyte cultures and to influence the ability of Abeta to activate astrocytes. Treatment of astrocytes with ACT, IL-1beta, or S100beta resulted in glial activation, as assessed by reactive morphology, upregulation of IL-1beta, and production of inducible nitric oxide synthase and nitric oxide. The ability of Abeta to induce astrocyte activation was also enhanced in the presence of each of these three proteins. In contrast, BChE alone did not activate astrocytes and had no effect on Abeta-induced activation ...
73% Less Thermal Damage with ellman® Radiowave Technology. A study at the University of Iowa compared ellman® radiowave technology to two leading low frequency electrosurgery generators6. The purpose of the study was to accurately measure the thermal damage between all three generators.. Each generator used the same electrode model, the ellman® Vari-Tip™ electrode, with a 0.007 inch diameter wire. Ellman manufactured the Vari-Tip™ electrode to fit in the ellman® Surgitron® Dual generator along with the Bovie® 1250 and ValleyLab® Force Fx generators. Each generator was set by the research staff to the optimum power setting to minimize drag on the tissue.. All skin incisions were made on a porcine abdomen. All of the incisions from the ellman®, Bovie® and ValleyLab® generators looked similar with the naked eye.. However, when the tissue samples were histologically examined with Hematoxylin Eosin stain, a dramatic difference was seen.. ...

Die Arbeit hat das Ziel finanzielle Konsequenzen des Klimawandels auf die Forstwirtschaft zu untersuchen. Die Überlebenszeitanalyse der Waldzustandserhebung ermöglichte die Aufstellung Klima- und Mischungsabhängiger Überlebenswahrscheinlichkeiten von Fichte und Buche. Integriert in einer finanziellen Optimierung konnten die Folgen des Klimawandels für Fichten- Buchenbestände auf Datenbasis eines privaten Forstbetriebes abgeschätzt werden. Bei beiden Schritten konnte die große Bedeutung der Beimischung von Buche in Fichtenbeständen zur Risikoabsicherung im Klimawandel sowohl ökologisch sowie finanziell dargelegt werde. Die Arbeit zeigt eine Methodik auf, ökologische Modellierung und finanzielle Optimierung miteinander zu verknüpfen um Entscheidungen in Forstbetrieben zu un¬terstützen. « ...

In this study, we have employed in silico methodology combining double pharmacophore based screening, molecular docking, and ADME/T filtering to identify dual binding site acetylcholinesterase inhibitors that can preferentially inhibit acetylcholinesterase and simultaneously inhibit the butyrylcholinesterase also but in the lesser extent than acetylcholinesterase. 3D-pharmacophore models of AChE and BuChE enzyme inhibitors have been developed from xanthostigmine derivatives through HypoGen and validated using test set, Fischers randomization technique. The best acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase inhibitors pharmacophore hypotheses Hypo1_A and Hypo1_B, with high correlation coefficient of 0.96 and 0.94, respectively, were used as 3D query for screening the Zinc database. The screened hits were then subjected to the ADME/T and molecular docking study to prioritise the compounds. Finally, 18 compounds were identified as potential leads against AChE enzyme, showing good predicted ...
Cholinesterases are a family of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of neurotransmitter acetylcholine. There are two types of cholinesterases, acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE), which differ in their distribution in the body. Currently, cholinesterase inhibitors (ChEI) represent the treatment of choice for Alzheimer´s disease (AD). In this paper, we report the synthesis and inhibitory effect on both enzymes of four new peptides structurally related to P1-Hp-1971 (amphibian skin peptide found in our previous work. Sequence: TKPTLLGLPLGAGPAAGPGKR-NH2). The bioassay data and cytotoxicity test show that some of the compounds possess a significant AChE and BChE inhibition and no toxic effect. The present work demonstrates that diminution of the size of the original peptide could potentially result in new compounds with significant cholinesterase inhibition activity, although it appears that there is an optimal size for the sequence. We also conducted an exhaustive ...
In biochemistry, a cholinesterase or choline esterase is an esterase that lyses choline-based esters, several of which serve as neurotransmitters. Thus, it is either of two enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of these cholinergic neurotransmitters, such as breaking acetylcholine into choline and acetic acid. These reactions are necessary to allow a cholinergic neuron to return to its resting state after activation. For example, in muscle contraction, acetylcholine at a neuromuscular junction triggers a contraction; but for the muscle to relax afterward, rather than remaining locked in a tense state, the acetylcholine must be broken down by a choline esterase. The main type for that purpose is acetylcholinesterase (also called choline esterase I or erythrocyte cholinesterase); it is found mainly in chemical synapses and red blood cell membranes. The other type is butyrylcholinesterase (also called choline esterase II or plasma cholinesterase); it is found mainly in the blood plasma. The two ...
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is secreted from various brain regions such as the substantia nigra, where levels of this molecule are disproportionately higher than those of choline acetyltransferase. It is thus possible that AChE may have alternative, non-cholinergic functions, one of which could be in development. Indeed, several recent studies have already demonstrated a neurotrophic action of AChE independent of hydrolysis of acetylcholine. In the developing nervous system the dominant forms of AChE differ from the tetramers (G4) that prevail in maturity, in that they are lower molecular weight monomers (G1) and dimers (G2). Therefore, the aims of this study were to explore the neurotrophic role of AChE by comparing the effects of mouse recombinant G1 and G4 AChE on the survival and development of mid-brain tyrosine hydroxylase immunoreactive neurons. Butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE), which also hydrolyses acetylcholine, and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), an established trophic factor for midbrain
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) are enzymes from the group of cholinesterases whose inhibition may have beneficial effects in the treatment of Alzheimers disease. Inhibition of AChE and BChE increases the concentration of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the synaptic cleft which leads to the improvement of cognitive functions in patients. It is therefore not surprising that both enzymes are therapeutically interesting targets for alleviating the symptoms of Alzheimers disease. Glutathione S-transferase (GST) is an enzyme whose expression is increased in cancer cells, and inhibitors of GST represent potential antitumor agents. In the last years, ruthenium compounds have been investigated for their promising antitumor and antimetastatic capabilities. In previous studies, ruthenium complexes have shown good anti-AChE activity and anti-GST activity and possible therapeutic applications in the treatment of Alzheimers disease and cancer, where they can act as ...
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of lactating propylthiouracil (PTU) on the thyroid-neural development in newborns. PTU was administered to female rats in drinking water (0.1% w/v) from birth to lactation day (LD) 30. A hypothyroid state was recorded at LDs 20 and 30 in both dams and their offspring where a marked depression (P,0.01) was observed in serum thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) levels, while a reverse pattern was noticed in serum thyrotropin (TSH) level as compared to a control group. Also, the maternal administration caused a highly significant decrease in the level of neonatal growth hormone (GH) at postnatal days (PNDs) 20 and 30. This hypothyroid condition produced inhibitory effects on 5′-monodeiodinase (5′-DI), and on cholinergic enzymes [butyrylcholinesterase (BuchE) and acetylcholinesterase (AchE)] in the neonatal cerebellum at the studied PNDs. This may also delay partially the development of the cerebellar Purkinje cells (PCs) via altering ...
In the expansion of Countervails organophosphorus (OP) medical countermeasures, two novel oxime drug technologies were licensed from the University of California, San Diego. Similar to an existing antidote currently used, one of the acquired oxime technologies offers improved reactivation of a critical nervous system enzyme called acetylcholinesterase that is inhibited when exposed to OP toxins such as nerve agents or OP pesticides. The second oxime technology catalytically reactivates the naturally occurring enzyme, butyrylcholinesterase that acts as an OP scavenger to inactivate the toxin. Both molecular classes were designed by a Nobel prize winning molecular chemist at The Scripps Institute. Countervail has acquired the worldwide commercialization rights to both molecule classes.. ...

Cholinesterase activity in blood of laboratory rats was monitored. Rats were intoxicated with paraoxon at dosis of 0 - 65 - 125 - 170 - 250 - 500 nmol. The 250 nmol dose was found to be the LD50. An electrochemical sensor was found useful to provide information about cholinesterase activity. The decrease of cholinesterase activity was correlated to intoxication symptoms and mortality level. It was found that the symptoms of intoxication are not observed while at least 50% of cholinesterase activity in blood remains. The minimal cholinesterase activity essential to survival is around 10%, when compared with the initial state. No changes in levels of low moleculary weight antioxidants were observed.
Cholinesterase-inhibiting pesticides are applied throughout Australia to control agricultural pests. Blood plasma cholinesterase (ChE) activity is a sensitive indicator of exposure to organophosphorus insecticides in vertebrates. To aid biomonitoring and provide reference data for wildlife pesticide-risk assessment, plasma acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) activities were characterised in nine species of native bird: King Quails (Excalfactoria chinensis), Budgerigars (Melopsittacus undulatus), White-plumed Honeyeaters (Lichenostomas penicillatus), Yellow-throated Miners (Manorina flavigula), Willie Wagtails (Rhipidura leucophrys), Australian Reed-Warblers (Acrocephalus australis), Brown Songlarks (Cincloramphus cruralis), Double-barred Finches (Taeniopygia bichenovii) and Australasian Pipits (Anthus novaeseelandiae). Plasma ChE activities in all species were within the range of most other avian species and all but one contained AChE and BChE; no AChE was present in King Quail,
The health state of nestlings can be a useful bioindicator of the quality of the environment in which they are reared, but, to enable detection of responses to environmental change, the variation of health parameters under natural conditions should be evaluated. We describe the variation of morphological, biochemical, and hematological variables in relation to time of sampling, hatching date, brood size and type, and year in nestlings of two populations of Great Tits (Parus major) in Choupal, Portugal, and Wytham, United Kingdom. The influence of these health variables on nestlings survival to first winter and recruitment into the breeding population was assessed in Wytham. Variation in plasma protein, total plasma cholinesterase (ChE), and acetylcholinesterase activities reflected circadian rhythms. Hatching date affected total plasma ChE and butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE) activities, and levels of red-blood-cell hemoglobin (Hb) and hematocrit (HCT). In Choupal, HCT increased with brood size. Nestlings
Plants of the Apocynaceae family have been traditionally used in the treatment of age-related brain disorders. Rauvolfia reflexa, a member of the family, has been used as an antidote for poisons and to treat malaria. The dichloromethane, ethanol and methanol extracts from the leaves of Rauvolfia reflexa showed potential acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) inhibitory activities, with IC50 values in the 8.49 to 52.23 g/mL range. Further cholinesterase inhibitory-guided isolation of these extracts afforded four bioactive compounds, namely: (E)-3-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)acrylic acid (1), (E)-methyl 3-(4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxyphenyl) acrylate (2), 17-methoxycarbonyl-14-heptadecaenyl-4-hydroxy-3-methoxycinnamate (3) and 1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-1-oxo-β-carboline (4 ...
We anticipate the study to validate a biomarker of cumulative prenatal exposure to organophosphates and other non-persistent pesticide. Specifically, we expect results to show that levels of the non-persistent pesticides in postpartum meconium reflect cumulative exposures during the 8th and 9th months of pregnancy. In the human fetus, this period in gestation coincides with the spurt in brain growth. Our hypothesis is based on a number of lines of evidence indicating that the meconium can serve as a reservoir for xenobiotics and provide information about exposures over the latter part of pregnancy. A biomarker of cumulative exposure would help improve Risk Assessments. Experimental studies have linked prenatal organophosphate exposure to adverse neurocognitive sequelae. Recent evidence suggests that exposures may be more dangerous than previously thought. Acetylcholinesterase, and the related enzyme, butyrylcholinesterase (also a target of organophosphates) appear to play an important role in ...
Oxidative stress is involved in different diseases, such as diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases. The genus Azorella includes about 70 species of flowering plant species; most of them are commonly used as food and in particular as a tea infusion in the Andean region of South America in folk medicine to treat various chronic diseases. Azorella glabra Wedd. aerial parts were firstly analyzed for their in vitro antioxidant activity using different complementary assays. In particular, radical scavenging activity was tested against biological neutral radical DPPH; ferric reducing power and lipid peroxidation inhibitory capacity (FRAP and Beta-Carotene Bleaching tests) were also determined. The Relative Antioxidant Capacity Index (RACI) was used to compare data obtained by different assays. Then, the inhibitory ability of samples was investigated against α-amylase and α-glucosidase enzymes involved in diabetes and against acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase enzymes considered as ...
Downloadable! Heterogeneous agents model with the stochastic beliefs formation is considered. Fundamentalists rely on their model employing fundamental information basis to forecast the next price period. Chartists determine whether current conditions call for the acquisition of fundamental information in a forward looking manner rather than relying on the past performance. It was shown that implementation of the agents memory can significantly change the preferences of trader strategies. The Worst out Algorithm (WOA) is used with considered heterogeneous agents model to simulate more realistic market conditions. The WOA replaces periodically the trading strategy that has the lowest performance level of all strategies presented on the market by the new one. The memory length of the new strategy that enters the market has the same stochastic structure as the initial strategies. This paper shows an influence of the agent memory as a stochastic process on the heterogeneous agents model with the WOA.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Substrate activation in acetylcholinesterase induced by low pH or mutation in the π-cation subsite. AU - Masson, Patrick. AU - Schopfer, Lawrence M. AU - Bartels, Cynthia F.. AU - Froment, Marie Thérèse. AU - Ribes, Fabien. AU - Nachon, Florian. AU - Lockridge, Oksana. PY - 2002/2/11. Y1 - 2002/2/11. N2 - Substrate inhibition is considered a defining property of acetylcholinesterase (AChE), whereas substrate activation is characteristic of butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE). To understand the mechanism of substrate inhibition, the pH dependence of acetylthiocholine hydrolysis by AChE was studied between pH 5 and 8. Wild-type human AChE and its mutants Y337G and Y337W, as well as wild-type Bungarus fasciatus AChE and its mutants Y333G, Y333A and Y333W were studied. The pH profile results were unexpected. Instead of substrate inhibition, wild-type AChE and all mutants showed substrate activation at low pH. At high pH, there was substrate inhibition for wild-type AChE and for the ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Hairy-root organ cultures for the production of human acetylcholinesterase. AU - Woods, Ryan R.. AU - Geyer, Brian C.. AU - Leket-Mor, Tsafrir. PY - 2008/12/23. Y1 - 2008/12/23. N2 - Background: Human cholinesterases can be used as a bioscavenger of organophosphate toxins used as pesticides and chemical warfare nerve agents. The practicality of this approach depends on the availability of the human enzymes, but because of inherent supply and regulatory constraints, a suitable production system is yet to be identified. Results: As a promising alternative, we report the creation of "hairy root" organ cultures derived via Agrobacterium rhizogenes-mediated transformation from human acetylcholinesterase-expressing transgenic Nicotiana benthamiana plants. Acetylcholinesterase-expressing hairy root cultures had a slower growth rate, reached to the stationary phase faster and grew to lower maximal densities as compared to wild type control cultures. Acetylcholinesterase accumulated to ...
Research has shown that the amount of a chemical called acetylcholine is diminishing in the brains of people with Alzheimers disease. Acetylcholine is one of the many chemicals that nerve cells use to communicate and is a neurotransmitter that plays a critical role in memory and learning processes.. Donepezil, rivastigmine and galantamine have a common mode of action as all three drugs prevent an enzyme known as acetylcholinesterase from breaking down acetylcholine in the brain. However, rivastigmine inhibits both acteylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase, the two enzymes that break down acetylcholine in the brain. Galantamine also appears to act on the nicotinic neuronal receptors in the brain, making them release more acetylcholine.. Increased concentrations of acetylcholine lead to improved communication between nerve cells involved in memory and learning, which may in turn temporarily improve or stabilise some of the key symptoms of Alzheimers dementia.. It is possible that one of ...

Our data indicate that M98K is not a risk factor for POAG by itself. However, at least among French POAG patients, M98K was associated positively with a low initial IOP and negatively with a high initial IOP. Therefore, it can be considered as a modifier of the glaucoma phenotype. This influence of the OPTN gene on IOP is consistent with its expression in the trabecular meshwork.6 Alternatively, as OPTN seems to interfere with induction of apoptosis,6,11 the M98K variant could increase the sensitivity of ganglial neural cells to risk factors of glaucoma. Consequently, in the presence of M98K, a lesser elevation of IOP would be required to damage the optic nerve.. Interestingly, other clinical features were not altered by the presence of M98K. Thus, patients positive or negative for M98K did not differ at diagnosis in age, magnitude of cupping of the optic disc, severity of visual field loss or response to IOP lowering treatments (data not shown).. Despite its low frequency, the M98K variant ...

Now, about its overproduction: I dont really think it would make that much of a difference. The fact this(i think), there is already enough cholinesterase in the synaptic cleft to quickly degrade any molecules of acetylcholine that are not attached to the receptor. In an extreme cases, the cholinesterase would simply block the nerve impulse, having similar effects to those of specific inhibitors of the nicotinic and muscarinic acetylcholine receptors ...

While the inhibition of cholinesterase (ChE) activity as a biomarker of exposure to neurotoxic insecticides is well established in aquatic invertebrates of temperate areas, little is known about organisms from polar regions including Antarctica. Cholinesterase activity was investigated in specimens of the Antarctic scallop, Adamussium colbecki, collected in winter 2000 at Campo Icaro (Ross Sea, Antarctica) for preliminary characterization of a potentially new biomarker. Characterization of various ChE enzymes using specific substrates including an acetylthiocholine iodide (ASCh) and a butyrylthiocholine iodide (BSCh) was performed in gills, digestive gland and adductor muscle of the scallop. The effect of in vivo Zn2þ exposure in gills and digestive gland of A. colbecki was also studied. All the tissues expressed ChE activity (gill,adductor muscle,digestive gland) in accordance with data reported for marine mussels (Mytilus sp.) from temperate areas (1.1-13.8 nmol min1 mg protein1). Significant ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Correlation of Red Blood Cell Acetylcholinesterase Enzyme Activity with Various RBC Indices. AU - Gupta, Shalvika. AU - Belle, Vijetha Shenoy. AU - Kumbarakeri Rajashekhar, Ramya. AU - Jogi, Sushma. AU - Prabhu, RV Krishnananda. PY - 2018/9/4. Y1 - 2018/9/4. N2 - Cholinesterases belongs to class hydrolases. There are two types acetylcholinesterase and butyryl cholinesterase. Acetylcholinesterase present in nerve endings and also in the RBC membrane. It helps to maintain the shape and size of RBCs. Any change in shape and size of RBCs may affect the activity of Acetylcholinesterase. Thus this study aimed to estimate RBCs Acetylcholinesterase enzyme activity in various types of anemias and correlate the RBCs Acetylcholinesterase enzyme activity with various hematological indices such as Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR), Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH), Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC), Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV), Red cell Distribution Width (RDW) etc. After ...
Quinn also considered the existence of a fourth domain in AChE, which binds to cationic substrates. This domain is located near the ridge of the gorge, more than 20 Å away from the active site, and is denominated peripheral anionic site. The binding of ligands to this peripheral site frequently causes conformational changes in the active site. These four domains act in a concerted way, resulting in the complex reaction dynamics that characterize AChE.28,53. As mentioned before, the enzymatic hydrolysis of ACh involves nucleophilic additions and acid-base reactions, and is based mainly on the action of the triad catalytic residues. The proposed mechanism most consistent with available experimental data consists of two nucleophilic attacks and two proton-transfers, with a covalent acyl-enzyme intermediate. In TcAChE, His-440 abstracts a proton from Ser-200, forming a nucleophile Ser-O- that attacks the ACh molecule, generating a tetrahedral adduct as intermediate. The protonated His-440 is ...
