Abstract

HARRIS et al.1 used two-dimensional electrophoresis on filter paper and in starch gel to show that serum cholinesterase is made up of several electrophoretically separable components. After completion of the runs, four zones of pseudocholinesterase activity were found in the gels, corresponding to at least four isozymes which are called C1, C2, C3 and C4. The last is the slowest component, in which most of the pseudocholinesterase activity is localized.
