Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

A major structural phospholipid in brain, comprising approx. 15% of total lipid; primarily localized to gray matter.

Phosphatidylcholine is the major membrane phospholipid in eukaryotic cells, forming the structural component of these membranes. It also serves as a reservoir for several lipid messengers and a source for several bioactive lipids such as, lysophosphatidylcholine, phosphatidic acid, diacylglycerol, lysophosphatidylcholine, platelet activating factor, and arachidonic acid.
