Target

  • Function
    Esterase with broad substrate specificity. Contributes to the inactivation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Can degrade neurotoxic organophosphate esters.
  • Tissue specificity
    Detected in blood plasma (at protein level). Present in most cells except erythrocytes.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in BCHE are the cause of butyrylcholinesterase deficiency (BChE deficiency) [MIM:177400]. BChE deficiency is a metabolic disorder characterized by prolonged apnoea after the use of certain anesthetic drugs, including the muscle relaxants succinylcholine or mivacurium and other ester local anesthetics. The duration of the prolonged apnoea varies significantly depending on the extent of the enzyme deficiency. BChE deficiency is a multifactorial disorder. The hereditary condition is transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the type-B carboxylesterase/lipase family.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
