Butyrylcholinesterase Deficiency Promotes Adipose Tissue Growth and Hepatic Lipid Accumulation in Male Mice on High-Fat Diet.
 

Author(s): Vicky Ping Chen, Yang Gao, Liyi Geng, Michael B Stout, Michael D Jensen, Stephen Brimijoin

Journal: Endocrinology. 2016 Aug;157(8):3086-95.

 

Despite numerous reports of relationships between weight gain and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE), this enzyme's role in the genesis of obesity remains unclear, but recent research points to strong links with ghrelin, the "hunger hormone." The availability of BChE knockout (KO) mice ...

[Prolonged curarisation following succinylcholine injection on butyrylcholinesterase deficiency and potentiated by a lithium treatment: a case report].
 

Author(s): Sophie Huynh-Moynot, Jean-Clair Moynot, ChloƩ Thill, Diane Commandeur, Mehdi Ould-Ahmed, Isabelle Drouillard

Journal: Ann. Biol. Clin. (Paris). ;71(4):485-8.

 

Succinylcholine is a short-term curare which degradation depends on its quick hydrolysis by butyrylcholinesterase (or pseudocholinesterase). Thus, a butyrycholinesterase deficiency, congenital or acquired, is a cause of a prolonged neuromuscular block. From an autosomal recessive ...

The butyrylcholinesterase knockout mouse as a model for human butyrylcholinesterase deficiency.
 

Author(s): Bin Li, Ellen G Duysen, Michaela Carlson, Oksana Lockridge

Journal: J. Pharmacol. Exp. Ther.. 2008 Mar;324(3):1146-54.

 

Butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) is an important enzyme for metabolism of ester drugs. Many humans have partial or complete BChE deficiency due to genetic variation. Our goal was to create a mouse model of BChE deficiency to allow testing of drug toxicity. For this purpose, we created ...
