Caption: Acetylcholinesterase molecule. Computer model showing the structure of torpedo ray acetylcholinesterase (green) with tacrine (red) in the active site. Acetylcholinesterase hydrolyses the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, stopping signal transmission. Tacrine is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor drug, used to treat Alzheimer's disease by increasing levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. A few atoms have been removed to show the pocket interior.
