Shortened action of succinylcholine in individuals with cholinesterase C <Subscript>5 </Subscript> isozyme

Abstract

To test the possibility that individuals with and without plasma cholinesterase Cs isozyme have differences in neuromuscular sensitivity to succinylcholine chloride, we ~ramined the effects of succinylcholine in these two groups of patients. Sera from 491 adult patients were examined for presence of the plasma cholinesterase Cs isozyme by use o f electrophoresis with polyacrylamide ; 24 were posi-
