Blood cholinesterase activity was measured in the monkey, dog, rat, mouse, and rabbit. The use of the substrate, dimethyl butyl acetate, resulted in expected values for the monkey, dog, and rabbit, but the cholinesterase activity of the rat and mouse was quite elevated. In vivo cholinesterase inhibition resulted in lower values in all animals. Dimethyl butyl acetate was indicated an acceptable substrate for measuring cholinesterase activity except in the mouse and rat, where high levels of non-specific esterases complicated interpretation.
