Choline Acetyltransferase Novocastra
Choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) is a 68 kD enzyme which catalyzes the synthesis of acetylcholine (ACh) from choline and acetyl coenzyme A. The human ChAT gene encodes two proteins, the 68 kD ChAT enzyme and a 27kD protein immunologically related and coexpressed with ChAT in cholinergic neurons of the central nervous system. The smaller protein may play a role in the regulation of ACh synthesis. ChAT is expressed in cholinergic neurons, the majority of the neurons in the nucleus basalis of Meynert, large neurons in the striatum (putamen and caudate nuclei), the majority of neurons in the pedunculopontine, hypoglossal, dorsal nucleus of vagus and subgroups of neurons in Roller's and the medial olivary accessory nuclei. Prominent staining is observed in ribonucleoprotein, distributed at the periphery of large neurons of the nucleus basalis of Meynert, the motor neurons in the hypoglossal and ambiguus nuclei.
