Vesicular Acetylcholine Transport Proteins (Vesicular Acetylcholine Transporter)

Vesicular amine transporter proteins that transport the neurotransmitter ACETYLCHOLINE into small SECRETORY VESICLES. Proteins of this family contain 12 transmembrane domains and exchange vesicular PROTONS for cytoplasmic acetylcholine.
Also Known As:
Vesicular Acetylcholine Transporter; VAChT Proteins; Acetylcholine Transporter, Vesicular; Transporter, Vesicular Acetylcholine; Transporters, Vesicular Acetylcholine; Vesicular Acetylcholine Transporters; Acetylcholine Transporters, Vesicular; Vesicular Acetylcholine Transporter Proteins

01/28/2009 - "In controls, most cardiac ganglion neurons expressed vesicular acetylcholine transporter, frequently colocalized with vesicular monoamine transporter, but lacked catecholamine histofluorescence. "
11/01/2001 - "To determine the expression patterns of the vesicular acetylcholine transporter (VAChT), tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in the pterygopalatine ganglion (PPG) and the exorbital lacrimal gland of normal mice. "
12/01/2015 - "We collected the L4 sympathetic trunk ganglion (STG), that our preliminary studies proved to contain the highest number (575.5 ± 152.93; mean ± S.E.M., n = 4) of FB+ sympathetic neurons projecting to CM. About half of the CM projecting neurons of this ganglion were catecholaminergic and showed the colocalization of Tyrosine Hydroxylase (TH) with Neuropeptide Y (NPY), Leu-Enkephaline (LENK), Vasoactive Intestinal Polypeptide (VIP), Calcitonine Gene Related Peptide (CGRP), Substance P (SP), neuronal Nitric Oxyde Sinthase (n-NOS), and Vesicular Acetylcholine Transporter (VAChT). "
04/01/2006 - "In caudal mesenteric ganglion, in addition to Tyrosine Hydroxylase- and Neuropeptide Y-immunoreactivity, Substance P-, Vesicular Acetylcholine Transporter-, Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide-, Leu-Enkephaline- immunoreactivity were also frequently present, followed by neuronal Nitric Oxide- and Calcitonine Gene-Related Peptide- immunoreactivity. "
01/01/2002 - "The presence of choline acetyltransferase (ChAT), vesicular acetylcholine transporter (VAChT), neuropeptide Y (NPY), vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP), somatostatin (SOM), galanin (GAL), substance P (SP) and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) was studied in neurons and nerve fibers of the porcine otic ganglion.
