Radioimmunoassay for Acetylcholine
There are a number of analytical methods for the determination of tissue concentrations of ACh (4), and each of these various methods offers particular advantages. We would like to present a procedure for the development of a radioimmunoassay (RIA) for the neurotransmitter substance of the cholinergic nervous system, and preliminary data on the use of RIA to quantitate levels of ACh in guinea pig brain.
