We've put together several well-characterized cholinergic neuron markers to help you identify your neuronal population.
Cholinergic neurons, which mainly use the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, play critical roles in fine-tuning brain function. Their progressive loss is one of the hallmarks of neurodegenerative diseases with cognitive deficits such as Alzheimer’s disease.
An enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of acetylcholine.
Mouse spinal cord sections stained with anti-choline acetyltransferase (ab178850).
Choline acetyltransferase modulators
