Succinylcholine and the enzyme BChE
Succinylcholine is processed within the body primarily by the enzyme BChE (butyrylcholinesterase). The activity of this enzyme can vary considerably depending on your genetic predisposition, which means the efficacy of succinylcholine can also differ from person to person.
Information about your genetic predisposition may therefore provide grounds for extra vigilance in relation to a treatment with succinylcholine.
