Metabolomics provides a direct functional read-out of the physiological status of an organism and is in principle ideally suited to describe someone's health status. Whereas only a limited number of small metabolites are used in the clinics, in inborn errors of metabolism an extensive repertoire of metabolites are used as biomarkers. We discuss...

Background: A high homocysteine concentration is a potential risk factor for cardiovascular disease that can be reduced through betaine supplementation. Choline is the precursor for betaine, but the effects of choline supplementation on plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) concentrations in healthy humans are unknown. Objective: The objective was to...

The uptake of [14C]choline was studied in cortical slices from rat brain after their incubation in a Krebs-Henseleit medium containing either 4.7 mM-KCl (low K), 25 mM-KCl (high K) or 25 mM-KCl without calcium (Ca free, high K). With 0.84 μM-[14C]choline in the medium the uptake per gram of tissue was 0.62 nmol after incubation in low K medium,...

Demethylation by sodium benzenethiolate has been used to analyse mixtures of isotopic variants of acetylcholine (ACh) by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). The present experiments show that demethylation by pyrolysis is also suitable for the simultaneous determination of deuterium labelled variants of ACh by means of GC/MS. However,...

Slices from rat brain cortex were incubated for either 5 or 60 min in a medium containing [3H]choline and 4.7 or 25 mM KCl. Bioassayable ACh and labelled ACh were determined in the incubation medium, in the total tissue homogenate and in subcellular fractions. Raising the KCl concentration from 4.7 to 25 mM stimulated the release and synthesis...
