Choline is a direct precursor of acetylcholine (ACh), aneurotransmitter of the central and peripheral nervous system thatregulates a variety of autonomic, cognitive, and motor functions.SLC5A7 is a Na(+)- and Cl(-)- dependent high-affinity transporterthat mediates the uptake of choline for acetylcholine synthesis incholinergic neurons (Apparsundaram et al., 2000 [PubMed11027560]).
