Why does the G117H mutation considerably improve the activity of human butyrylcholinesterase against sarin? Insights from quantum mechanical/molecular mechanical free energy calculations.

Abstract

Human butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) is recognized as the most promising bioscavenger for organophosphorus (OP) warfare nerve agents. The G117H mutant of human BChE has been identified as a potential catalytic bioscavenger with a remarkably improved activity against OP nerve agents such as sarin, but it still does not satisfy the clinical use.
