Butyrylcholinesterase (BChE, EC is synthetizised in the liver, and is predominantly found in serum, liver and pancreas. Butyrylcholinesterase is a tetrameric glycoprotein (molecular mass of 350 kDa), and consists of four subunits, each with molecular mass of 90 kDa (1).

Application 1

HAH 002-01 reacts with BChE in normal human serum in sandwich ELISA, using HAH 002-01 as both capture and detection antibody (1). Serum cholinesterase activity can be measured by enzyme antigen immunoassay (EAIA) in combination with HAH 002-01 as capture antibody (2, 3). HAH 002-01 is also applicable in sophisticated immunomagnetic quantification assays for the detection of nerve agent adducts (4, 5).

The calibration curve of a sandwich assay for Butyrylcholinesterase using HAH 002-01 as the capture antibody and HAH 002-01B as the biotinylated detection antibody.
Application 2

In Western blotting after SDS-PAGE no reaction is seen with either the reduced or unreduced form of BChE. No reaction is seen with acetylcholinesterase from human nervous tissue and erythrocytes.
