Abstract
WE PLAN TO ADAPT A LABORATORY ASSAY FOR ACETYLCHOLINESTERASE ACTIVITY FOR USE AS A TEST STRIP FOR CHOLINESTERASE ACTIVITY IN SALIVA AND SMALL AMOUNTS OF SERUM. WE ANTICIPATE THAT THIS TEST STRIP WILL BE SIMPLE TO USE AND NOT REQUIRE SPECIAL EQUIPMENT, AND WILL YIELD QUANTITATIVE RESULTS WITH ENZYME ON THE ORDER OF 250 UU. PHASE I EFFORT WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARDS PREPARING THE TEST STRIPS AND VALIDATING THE ASSAY WITH PURIFIED ENZYMES AND FLUID SAMPLES FROM NORMAL INDIVIDUALS.
