    Choline Chloride, USP

    $30.00 - $42.00

    Choline Chloride is an essential nutrient commonly grouped with the B complex vitamins that plays key roles in many biological processes.  Choline is found in sphingomyeline and lecithin.  It is a precursor to acetylcholine.  It plays a role in methyl group metabolism and can be used as a standard in methionine and choline metabolism. 

    Choline Chloride is soluble in aqueous solution.

    Mechanism of Action Choline serves as a precursor component to two major cell membrane components: phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin. In addition, choline also functions as a methyl group donor to several different substrates.
    Microbiology Applications Because of its role in normal cellular processes, Choline Chloride can be used as a cell culture media supplement.
    Eukaryotic Cell Culture Applications Choline was added to culture medium of in vitro-produced embryos to see if it altered the phenotype of blastocysts.  Choline was found to alter the phenotype of preimplantation bovine embryos produced in vitro.  Choline chlorine can act in a concentraiton-dependent manner to alter development, gene expression, and DNA methylation (ref).
    Plant Biology Choline chloride based solvents can be used in extraction media for extracting phenolic compounds.
