A sensitive chemiluminescence method for assay of choline which has been developed for analysis of erythrocyte and plasma levels of choline is reported here. This method includes a charcoal purification step which yields consistent results with plasma and erythrocyte extracts. Further, choline derived from membrane phosphatidylcholine may also be measured(More)
