  • ABSTRACT Choline has many physiological functions throughout the body that are dependent on its available local supply. However, since choline is a charged hydrophilic cation, transport mechanisms are required for it to cross biological membranes. Choline transport is required for cellular membrane construction and is the rate-limiting step for acetylcholine production. Transport mechanisms include: (1) sodium-dependent high-affinity uptake mechanism in synaptosomes, (2) sodium-independent low… CONTINUE READING
