Phosphatidyl Choline

What is Phosphatidyl Choline?

Phosphatidyl cholines are a class of phospholipids that incorporate choline as a headgroup. They are a major component of biological membranes and can be isolated from either egg yolk (in Greek lekithos - λεκιθος) or soy beans from which they are mechanically extracted or chemically extracted using hexane.
