Abstract

Acetylcholinesterase activity is present in both particulate and soluble forms in wild-type Drosophila melanogaster embryos. The particulate form of the enzyme is localized in the CNS, while the soluble forms are non-CNS-specific. Deletion mapping studies show that all AChE activity is abolished if the cytological region between 87E1-2 and 87E4 is missing. An additional region mapping to the proximal part of the 87E4 band is needed for CNS-specific AChE activity
