Studies on a Molecular Form (C4/5) of Human Butyrylcholinesterase (BChE)
When BChE is submitted to agar gel electrophoresis at pH 6.5 (1) the phenotypes of the CHE2 locus can be clearly identified. In the CHE2 C5- phenotype all the BChE molecular forms migrate together forming only one anodal band whereas in the CHE2 C5+ phenotype (around 10% of Caucasians) another band (C5) is present in a cathodal position.
