Contractile role of M2 and M3 muscarinic receptors in gastrointestinal smooth muscle.
In rats, the activation of the subtypes M1 and/ or M3 muscarinic receptors of smooth muscle fibers of the stomach stimulates GE (16,17) and probably are the subtypes involved in the effect of hypoglycemia on gastric motility.
2] and muscarinic receptors blockade prevents diuresis, natriuresis, kaliuresis, and chloride excretion induced by ES-EC
By acting via muscarinic receptors (M3) acetylcholine causes an inositol triphosphate (IP3) mediated release of intracellular calcium,9 the release of diacylglycerol (which activates protein kinase C), causing contraction of smooth muscles.
We report a case of chronic, nonoccupational mercury poisoning due to 10-year prolonged Hg vapour exposure as a result of spillage from broken barometers at home, paralleled by related alteration in peripheral neurochemical parameters, that is, lymphocytes muscarinic receptors.
