NCBI Description of SLC5A7
|Choline is a direct precursor of acetylcholine (ACh), a neurotransmitter of the central and peripheral nervous system that regulates a variety of autonomic, cognitive, and motor functions. SLC5A7 is a Na(+)- and Cl(-)- dependent high-affinity transporter that mediates the uptake of choline for acetylcholine synthesis in cholinergic neurons (Apparsundaram et al., 2000 [PubMed 11027560]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008].|
