The Cholinesterase, Serum, Plasma, RBC test contains 1 test with 2 biomarkers.
True Cholinesterase (RBC and plasma) activity is decreased in individuals with exposure to organophosphorous insecticides. True Cholinesterase, found in erythrocytes and nerve tissue, is responsible for inactivating acetylcholinesterase at nerve endings. With decreased enzyme activity, patients may display a range of nervous system dysfunction. Analysis of RBC and serum or plasma activity is useful in monitoring exposure and recovery.
