Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a trophic and survival factor for cholinergic neurons, and it induces the expression of several genes that are essential for synthesis and storage of acetylcholine (ACh), specifically choline acetyltransferase, vesicular ACh transporter (VAChT), and choline transporter. We have found previously that the phosphatidylinositol(More)
Synthesis, storage and release of acetylcholine (ACh) require the expression of several specialized enzymes, including choline acetyltransferase (ChAT), vesicular acetylcholine transporter (VAChT) and the high-affinity choline transporter (CHT). Extracellular factors that regulate CHT expression and their signaling pathways remain poorly characterized.(More)
