Abstract Fifteen choline analogues were tested as substitutes for choline in the larval diet of Phormia regina . From the results the structural requirements for an adequate choline substitute are further defined. The choline analogue, (CH 3 ) 3 +NCH 2 CH 2 CH 2 OH, although not an inhibitor in the presence of choline, inhibits growth when choline is replaced in the diet by carnitine or γ-butyrobetaine. This compound presumably inhibits one of the reactions which metabolizes carnitine or… CONTINUE READING
