    ACh is synthesized both in the axon terminal (from reuptake of metabolized components), and may also be formed in the cell body (soma), then transported to the axon terminal.

    Acetylcholine is synthesized in cell body of neuron and then transported down the axon (microtubules mediated transport) to the axon terminal. Then, it is stored in the small vesicles at the axon terminal.

    see attached article under the heading 'synthesis of neurotransmitters'.
