In 41 cases, the cholinesterase activity of human amniotic fluid, free from blood was on the average 0.10 microkatal, approximatively 300 times weaker than mother's serum. In this total cholinesterase, a large amount (about 40%) of acetylcholinesterase [EC] was found. Amniotic cholinesterases had a prominent placental origin, activity probably proceeded from cellular elements.
