Authors: Roy (Pal), Rini

Keywords: Acetylcholinesterase activity
Issue Date: May-2006
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) has been purified from three different regions of rat brain using Sephadex┬« G 200 column. SDS PAGE (6%) showed single band for the purified AChE fractions. Purified and lyophilized AChE from different (NH4)2SO4 precipitated fractions of three brain parts were utilized for in vitro enzyme kinetics using Dimethoate (Dmt) as inhibitor. Km values for cerebellum and hypothalamus were almost similar whereas cerebrum showed a different Km value compared to other two regions. With the drug Rivastigmine it was found that % G1 and G4 forms of AChE in three different parts of brain are different.
