BCHE

A gene on chromosome 3q26.1-2 that encodes butyrylcholinesterase, which has a broad substrate spectrum. It contributes to inactivation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and can degrade neurotoxic organophosphate esters.
 
Molecular pathology
Mutant alleles at BCHE are responsible for suxamethonium sensitivity.

In human lung adenocarcinoma cell line OM, at least four genes ( MME , SI , BCHE , and KNG ) were involved in carcinogenesis.
La deteccion analitica de plaguicidas es un recurso mas costoso que la medicion de BChE. El metodo aplicado en el presente trabajo, HPLC Ms-Ms provee un 100% de exactitud en la confirmacion diagnostica de la presencia del carbofuran, pero otros metodos analiticos mas accesibles (cromatografia en capa fina TLC, cromatografia gaseosa GC (12), HPLC- UV (22)), son tambien validos.
