WHAT DOES ACETYLCHOLINESTERASE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

acetylcholinesterase

Acetylcholinesterase

Acetylcholinesterase, also known as AChE or acetylhydrolase, is a hydrolase that hydrolyzes the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. AChE is found at mainly neuromuscular junctions and cholinergic brain synapses, where its activity serves to terminate synaptic transmission. It belongs to carboxylesterase family of enzymes. It is the primary target of inhibition by organophosphorus compounds such as nerve agents and pesticides.

Definition of acetylcholinesterase in the English dictionary

The definition of acetylcholinesterase in the dictionary is an enzyme in nerve cells that is responsible for the destruction of acetylcholine and thus for switching off excitation of the nerve.
