Acetylcholine functions as a neurotransmitter in both the central and peripheral nervous systems of all vertebates, and is the principle neurotransmitter used at the neuromuscular junction. Presynaptic synthesis of acetylcholine requires a steady supply of choline, which is acquired by a plasma membrane high affinity choline transporter (CHT).
