Summary

The activity of acetylcholine esterase of human red cells was studied in the presence or absence of thyroid hormones and their metabolites such as L-T1, L-T2, L-T3, and L-T4. The activity of the enzyme of intact red cells was not affected by these hormones, though studied under various conditions: the activity of acetylcholine esterase of intact red cells was 19.5 ± 1.2 units/gHb in the absence of L-T1, and 18.3 ± 0.9 units/gHb and 19.8 ± 1.4 units/gHb in the presence of 50 μg/dl and 500 μg/dl of L-T1, respectively. Similarly, 3,5-L-T2, 3,3-L-T2, rT3, L-T3, and L-T4 had little effect on the enzyme activity of intact red cells.
