Sodium-coupled, high-affinity choline transporters (CHTs) are inhibited by 3-morpholinosydnonimine (SIN-1) [peroxynitrite (ONOO⁻) donor]; ONOO⁻ can be produced from nitric oxide and reactive oxygen species during neurodegeneration. SIN-1 rapidly increases CHT internalization from the cell surface, and this correlates with decreased choline uptake. This(More)
The sodium-coupled, hemicholinium-3-sensitive, high-affinity choline transporter (CHT) is responsible for transport of choline into cholinergic nerve terminals from the synaptic cleft following acetylcholine release and hydrolysis. In this study, we address regulation of CHT function by plasma membrane cholesterol. We show for the first time that CHT is(More)
The high-affinity choline transporter (CHT) is responsible for choline uptake into cholinergic neurons, with this being the rate-limiting step for acetylcholine production. Altering CHT protein disposition directly impacts choline uptake activity and cholinergic neurotransmission. Amyloid precursor protein (APP) interacts with CHT proteins and increases(More)
