Additional information


Using Acetylcholine-like-BSA conjugate (ACh-BSA), antibody specificity was performed by using an ELISA test by competition experiments:

Acetylcholine-like-BSA Kd around 10-8 M very high affinity and specificity

No crossreactivity with close competitors:

Competitors Affinity compared to ACh-BSA
Farnesol-BSA 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
Retinoic acid-BSA 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
Myristic acid-BSA 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
Acetylcholine free 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity
Choline free 50 000 times lower no crossreactivity

The antibody recognizes the conjugated form of the small molecule, not the free form (see protocol for specific tissue preparation).

Additional Information


Monoclonal antibody was obtained after ARK mouse immunisation with the conjugate: Choline-bovine serum albumin (BSA). Hybridoma clone was obtained by hybridization of spleen cells with the myeloma cell line SP2/O/Ag14

Host species




Clone number

HYChol 001


Other Neurotransmitters


IgG2a, Kappa


Conjugated Choline (Acetylcholine-like)


Synthetic Choline conjugated (Acetylcholine-like) to bovine serum albumin (BSA)

Species reactivity

The antibody recognizes the target in all species, vertebrates (included humans) and invertebrates, because of the universality of the small molecule


Monoclonal antibody was preadsorbed on protein carriers and purified by ammonium sulfate precipitation
