Contractile role of M2 and M3 muscarinic receptors in gastrointestinal smooth muscle.
In the present study, our data showing that atropine inhibited the acceleration of GE induced by hypoglycemia after a high dose of insulin (1 U/kg) suggested that muscarinic receptors were activated by acetylcholine released in the hypoglycemic condition, corroborating the above hypothesis and confirming previous observations in humans and rats (15,16).
But clemastines mechanism of action is poorly understood, Chan said, and pharmacologically speaking it is a dirty compound: in addition to its effects on histamine and muscarinic receptors, it interacts with many other types of receptors, and it affects many types of cells besides oligodendrocytes.
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.
The Artemisia vulagaris extract inhibited contractions induced by CCh more effectively than contractions induced by high K+, indicating that it mediate urinary bladder relaxation through dual muscarinic receptors and Ca++ entry blockade.
d) STW5 largely protected against the increased sensitisation of the gastric muscarinic receptors
To do that, the researchers turned to solifenacin, the antimuscarinic drug for overactive bladder; the bladder muscle contains several muscarinic receptors.
