Choline acetyltransferase (EC 22.214.171.124) is an enzyme which is synthesized within the body of a neuron. It is then transferred to the nerve terminal via axoplasmic flow. It joins Acetyl CoA to choline, resulting in the formation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
It is often used as a marker, immunohistochemically, for motor neurons (motoneurons).
Transferases: acyltransferases (EC 2.3)
|2.3.1: other than amino-acyl groups|
N-Acetylglutamate synthase - Choline acetyltransferase - Acetyl-Coenzyme A acetyltransferase - Dihydrolipoyl transacetylase - Acetyl-CoA C-acyltransferase - Beta-galactoside transacetylase - Carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase (CPT1, CPT2) - Acyltransferase like 2 - Chloramphenicol acetyltransferase - Aminolevulinic acid synthase - Beta-ketoacyl-ACP synthase - Glyceronephosphate O-acyltransferase - Lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase - Histone acetyltransferase (P300/CBP) - Serotonin N-acetyl transferase
|2.3.2 - Aminoacyltransferases|
|2.3.3 - converted into alkyl on transfer|
