Free illustration of acetylcholinesterase. The neurotransmitter acetylcholine is used to transport a signal from nerve cells to muscle cells. To stop the signal after it was transmitted acetylcholine must be destroyed. This is the job of acetylcholinesterase, which can be found in the synapse between nerve- and muscle-cells. It splits acetylcholine in about 80 microseconds in two inactive parts and therefore stops the signal. This parts can later be reassembled to acetylcholine. This illustration is based on structural data from Sussman, J.L., Harel, M., Silman, I.
