The free choline concentration in the rat brain was found to be 26.3 nanomoles per g. of brain tissue. This value was obtained through use of 6 sec microwave irradiation for killing animals and inactivating enzymes, followed by a pyrolysis gas chromatographic assay procedure. The identities of compounds measured from brain samples were verified by mass spectrometry.
