Assay Procedure
  • Assay Buffer: 0.1 M Sodium Phosphate, 0.05% (w/v) Brij-35, pH 7.5
  • Recombinant Human Acetylcholinesterase/ACHE (rhACHE) (Catalog # 7574-CE)
  • Substrate: Acetylthiocholine (ATC) (Sigma, Catalog # A5626), 20 mM stock in DMSO
  • 5’,5’-Dithiobis(2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB) (Sigma, Catalog # D-8130), 10 mM stock in DMSO
  • 96-well Clear Plate (Costar, Catalog # 92592)
  • Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Plus by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute rhACHE to 0.002 µg/mL in Assay Buffer.
  2. Dilute Substrate to 200 µM in Assay Buffer containing 100 µM DTNB.
  3. Load 50 µL dilute rhACHE to clear plate. Include a control containing Assay Buffer instead of rhACHE.
  4. Start reaction by adding 50 µL Substrate/DNTB mix.
  5. Read plate in kinetic mode for 5 minutes at an absorbance of 405 nm.
  6. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (nmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (OD/min) x well volume (L) x 109 nmol/mol
ext. coeff** (M-1cm-1) x path corr.*** (cm) x amount of enzyme (µg)

     *Adjusted for Substrate Blank 
     **Using the extinction coefficient 13260 M-1cm-1 
     ***Using the path correction 0.32 cm
     Note: the output of many spectrophotometers is in mOD Per Well:
  • rhACHE: 0.0001 µg
  • DTNB: 50 µM
  • ATC: 100 µM

The classical role of ACHE is to terminate cholinergic neurotransmission by hydrolysis of acetylcholine (ACH) (1). ACHE is thought to be involved in the pathology of Alzheimer's disease (AD) by accelerating the assembly of A beta peptides into fibrillar species through forming complexes with A beta via the peripheral anionic site on ACHE. ACHE inhibitors have been used to delay symptoms of AD patients by virtue of their ability to enhance ACH availability, as well as reduce amyloidogenesis and subsequent neurotoxicity (2). Its involvement in the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway connects ACHE with a possible marker of low-grade systemic inflammation in obesity, hypertension, coronary heart disease, and AD (3). Alternative splicing produces three isoforms: an amphipathic form that exists as both monomeric and multimeric forms, a soluble monomeric form lacking the cysteine residue near the C-terminus, and a GPI-anchored dimeric form found in the membranes of erythrocytes (1). The recombinant human ACHE (rhACHE) was expressed as the amphipathic form that consists of soluble monomer and multimeric forms.
