Gene: BCHE (butyrylcholinesterase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BCHE
Name: butyrylcholinesterase
RGD ID: 732174
Description: Exhibits cholinesterase activity and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cocaine metabolic process. Localizes to blood microparticle. Implicated in Alzheimer's disease; coronary artery disease (multiple); diabetes mellitus (multiple); epilepsy; and inherited metabolic disorder. Biomarker of several diseases, including bacterial meningitis; dementia; familial hyperlipidemia; hypertension; and neurodegenerative disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: acylcholine acylhydrolase; BCHED; butyrylcholine esterase; CHE1; CHE2; choline esterase II; cholinesterase; cholinesterase (serum) 2; cholinesterase 1; E1; pseudocholinesterase
