Summary of "Choline ameliorates ethanol induced alterations in tyrosine phosphorylation and distribution in detergent-resistant membrane microdomains of L1 cell adhesion molecule in vivo."

Exposure to ethanol during pregnancy is the cause of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. The function of L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1), critical for proper brain development, is dependent on detergent-resistant membrane microdomains (DRM). Ethanol at low concentrations disrupts L1 function measured by inhibition of downstream signaling and alterations in L1-DRM distribution in cerebellum in vivo and in cerebellar granule neurons (CGN) in vitro. We have previously shown that choline pretreatment of CGN partially prevents ethanol toxicity through improving L1 function in vitro. Here we show that choline supplementation reduces the impact of ethanol on L1 in cerebellum in vivo.

Placental extract ameliorates liver fibrosis in a methionine- and choline-deficient diet-induced mouse model of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.

Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a severe form of fatty liver disease that is defined by the presence of inflammation and fibrosis, which ultimately leads to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcin...

Decreased ω6/ω3 PUFA ratio attenuates ethanol-induced alterations in intestinal homeostasis, microbiota and liver injury.

Ethanol-induced alterations in intestinal homeostasis lead to multi-system pathologies, including liver injury.  w6-PUFAs exert pro-inflammatory activity, while ω3-PUFAs promote anti-inflammatory ac...

Repeated ethanol exposure influences key enzymes in cholesterol and lipid homeostasis via the AMPK pathway in the rat prefrontal cortex.

Cholesterol homeostasis has been proposed to be implicated in the development of addiction. However, the effects of ethanol on cholesterol homeostasis within the brain are not well understood. One of ...

Dietary Choline Supplementation Attenuates High-Fat-Diet-Induced Hepatocellular Carcinoma in Mice.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the third most common cause of cancer-related death in the world. Choline deficiency has been well studied in the context of liver disease; however, less is known abo...

Understanding factors governing distribution volume of ethyl cellulose-ethanol to optimize ablative therapy in the liver.

Ethanol ablation, the injection of ethanol to induce necrosis, was originally used to treat hepatocellular carcinoma, with survival rates comparable to surgery. However, efficacy has been limited due ...

The Effects of Ethanol on Intestinal Permeability and Gut Hormones

The aime of this study is to envsitigate if ethanol has an incretin effect. This is done by administration of ethanol orally vs. an isoethanolaemic i.v. infusion of ethanol.

Plasma TMAO and Choline Levels in Individuals With Metabolic Syndrome - Comparison Between Eggs and Choline Supplement.

The objective of this study is to determine the effects of consuming either 3 eggs per day and compare it to daily choline supplement (choline bitartrate) for a dose of approximately 400 m...

Systemic and Local Diffusion of Ethanol After Administration of Ethanol 96% Formulated in a Gel and Ethanol 98% Solution by the Percutaneous Route, in Patients With Congenital Venous Malformations:Pharmacokinetic, Pharmacodynamic and Clinical Study.

Absolute ethanol has been used "off-label" as an unmodified formulation (solution) in CVM. Despite its effectiveness, absolute ethanol appears difficult to handle because of its high diffu...

PLatelets Acetyl-CoA Carboxylase Phosphorylation State in SEPtic Shock

Knowing the dramatic increase in thrombin generation during sepsis, our research hypothesis is that AMPK-induced ACC phosphorylation in platelets is increased and that this might modulate ...

Comparison of PET With 68GA-PSMA-11 and 18F-Fluorocholine for Recurrence in Men With Prostate Cancer

As choline transport and phosphorylation are upregulated in most cancers, including prostate cancer, positron emission tomography (PET) with choline tracers has found widespread use to det...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An enzyme that is active in the first step of choline phosphoglyceride (lecithin) biosynthesis by catalyzing the phosphorylation of choline to phosphorylcholine in the presence of ATP. Ethanolamine and its methyl and ethyl derivatives can also act as acceptors. EC

Donor of choline in biosynthesis of choline-containing phosphoglycerides.

An enzyme group that specifically dephosphorylates phosphotyrosyl residues in selected proteins. Together with PROTEIN-TYROSINE KINASE, it regulates tyrosine phosphorylation and dephosphorylation in cellular signal transduction and may play a role in cell growth control and carcinogenesis.

A condition produced by a deficiency of CHOLINE in animals. Choline is known as a lipotropic agent because it has been shown to promote the transport of excess fat from the liver under certain conditions in laboratory animals. Combined deficiency of choline (included in the B vitamin complex) and all other methyl group donors causes liver cirrhosis in some animals. Unlike compounds normally considered as vitamins, choline does not serve as a cofactor in enzymatic reactions. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)

An enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of cytidylate (CMP) to choline phosphate to form CDPcholine. It is the rate-limiting enzyme in the choline pathway for the biosynthesis of phosphatidylcholine. Its activity is increased by glucocorticoids. EC
