Several side activities have been attributed to butyrylcholinesterase (BChE), including aryl acylamidase (AAA) activity, which is an amidase-like activity with unknown physiological function splitting the artificial substrate o-nitroacetanilide. For avians, extensive developmental data have pointed to neurogenetic functions of BChE, however, a possible AAA activity of BChE has not been studied. In this study, we first compare the relative levels of AAA exhibited by BChE in whole sera from chick… CONTINUE READING
