Summary:  Mimicking the von Neumann version of Kustermans and Vaes' locally compact quantum groups, Franck Lesieur has introduced a notion of measured quantum groupoid, in the setting of von Neumann algebras. In this article, we suppose that the basis of the measured quantum groupoid is central; in that case, we prove that a specific sub-$C^*$-algebra is invariant under all the data of the measured quantum groupoid; moreover, this sub-$C^*$-algebra is a continuous field of $C^*$-algebras; when the basis is central in both the measured quantum groupoid and its dual, we get that the measured quantum groupoid is a continuous field of locally compact quantum groups. On the other hand, using this sub-$C^*$-algebra, we prove that any abelian measured quantum groupoid comes from a locally compact groupoid.
