Substrate for choline acetyl transferase
|Alternate Names||(2-Hydroxyethyl)trimethylammonium chloride|
|Application Notes||Choline chloride is used as a substrate for choline acetyl transferase.|
|Base Catalog Number||101386|
|Beilstein Registry Number||3563126|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||The enzymatic activities of butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) and paraoxonase 1 (PON1), two serum enzymes synthesized by the liver and related with inflammation, were decreased in a sepsis animal model injected with LPS. Choline chloride administered intravenously at 20 mg/kg body weight prevents the LPS-mediated decreases in the activities of these two enzymes.|
