Sexually Dimorphic Activation of Liver and Brain Phosphatidylethanolamine N-Methyltransferase by Dietary Choline Deficiency

Abstract

Phosphatidylethanolamine N-methyltransferase (PEMT) activity was measured by a radioenzymatic assay in homogenates of brain and liver obtained from Sprague Dawley rats fed a choline-free or control (0.3 g/kg of choline chloride) diet for seven days. Choline deficiency increased PEMT activity in the liver of male rats by 34% but had no effect on hepatic PEMT… (More)
