CHT1 (high affinity choline transporter 1) is a member of sodium:solute symporter (SSF) (TC 2.A.21) family that facilitates sodium/chloride-ion dependent import of choline from extracellular space to the neurons with high affinity. CHT1 is expressed in putamen, spinal cord and medulla, and is specific for cholinergic neurons. Acetyl choline is synthesized from choline and acetyl CoA by choline acetyltransferase in the cytoplasm of cholinergic neurons, and then incorporated into synaptic vesicles by VAChT (vesicular acetylcholine transporter). In the pre-synaptic terminals of cholinergic neurons, CHT1 mediates choline uptake which is the rate limiting step for acetyl-choline biosynthesis and is essential for post-natal viability. CHT1 been shown to be internalized in a clathrin dependent manner, whereas, the synaptic vesicles exocytosis enhances its cell surface expression; a mechanism that facilitates CHT1 functions at cellular surfaces with its predominant localization in the synaptic vesicles in cholinergic neurons. Moreover, Nedd4-2-mediated ubiquitination regulates CHT1 cell surface expression reflecting a possibility that treatments or drugs which inhibit CHT1-Nedd4-2 interactions might be useful for diseases involving decrease in acetylcholine level such as Alzheimer's disease. Moreover, polymorphic variation in CHT1 has been shown to predict early, subclinical measures of carotid atherosclerosis which may aid in understanding cholinergic-vagal processes potentially underlying atherosclerotic risk.
