Thank you for your email.

I have done a homology search between human ACHE and Danio Rerio (Zebrafish). The data shows intermittent homology, please check


As you can see homology in C-terminal end is quite good so antibody ab31276 could be suitable producthttps://www.abcam.com/acetylcholinesterase-antibody-ab31276.html . If you are interested in using this product I am happy to provide you Abbtrial offer. Please check the terms and conditions;


I hope this information will helpful. Should you have any question please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your enquiry.

I am sorry to confirm I am unable to find the cDNA sequence of acetylcholinesterase isoform T. We do have a link to the Unigene protein database site which has information regarding isoform T:


I'm sorry it is not clear if you are requesting a sample of the antibody, or a sample of the cDNA? Regrettably, we do not sell cDNAsamples. With regards to samples of antibody, I am sorry to confirm that because we carry over 80,000 products, it is unfortunately notfeasible for us to keep small sample sizes of our products.

We are happy to reassure our customers that all of our products are covered by our Abpromise, which guarantees that the product will work in the applications and species specified on the datasheet, or we will offer a replacement, credit, or refund within 6 months of purchase.

If the product is to be used in an untested species or application, you may be eligible for our testing discount program if the antibody has not yet been purchased. Please contact our Scientific Support team by replying to this email prior to purchase for more information.

Otherwise, we like to encourage all of our customers to submit an Abreview via the online product datasheet. We always appreciate customer feedback, whether positive or negative, and we make all product information available to researchers. Plus, each Abreview earns Abpoints that can be used for discounts on future purchases or rewards such as Amazon.com gift certificates.

Thank you for your enquiry. I have enquired at the originator of the product and according to their immunizing peptide sequence blast result, there is no match with butyrylcholinesterase. Therefore, this product should not cross react with butyrlcholinesterase. I hope this information will helpful. If there is anything else that I can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact me.
