Description
This is a ready to go out-of-box molecule, It is 100% accurate to the real chemical structure, Real scientific data was used as a reference to the construction of this model. The colors of the elements are the scientific standard used for identification.

Phosphocholine (PC) is an intermediate in the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine in tissues. Phosphocholine is made in a reaction, catalyzed by choline kinase, that converts ATP + Choline into Phosphocholine and ADP. Phosphocholine is a molecule found for example in lecithin.

It is also used by nematodes and human placentas to suppress an immune response by their hosts. It is one of the natural constituents of hens' eggs (and many other eggs), in the form of Egg-PC, which is often used in biomimetic membrane studies. It is also one of the binding targets of C-Reactive Protein (CRP). Thus when a cell is damaged, CRP binds to phosphocholine beginning the recognition and phagocytotic immunologic response.
