What Does Acetylcholine Do Bloodvessel
ACH effect on BV: M3 muscarinic ach receptors are located in smooth muscles of blood vessels. Because they're gq-coupled & mediate increase in intracellular calcium, they typically cause contraction of smooth muscle (as in bronchi). But activation of m3 on vascular endothelial cells causes increased synthesis of nitric oxide, which diffuses to adjacent vascular smooth muscle cells and causes their relaxation. ...Read more
Yes, in a way.: Acetylcholine transmits signals from nerves to muscles, such as those that control the pupil size and the focusing power. When these muscles are activated, the pupil will get smaller and the focusing muscles will contract, enabling the eye to see up close, as for reading. These two actions can also normally occur separately. Acetylcholine is sometimes used during eye surgery. ...Read more
See physician: I'm not sure what you mean by this deficiency, and don't know about alternative treatments. This site is intended mostly for main stream physicians. I believe you should consult with your primary care physician, review whatever symptoms you believe are related to this, get the appropriate lab tests, and develop an accurate diagnosis first. ...Read more
Acetylcholine: Acetylcholine widely used at synapses in the peripheral nervous system. Released at the terminals of all motor neurons activating skeletal muscle. All preganglionic neurons of the autonomic nervous system, the postganglionic neurons of the parasympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter where it mediates gut movements ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Neuromusculat ransmi: Acetylcholine is an import neuromuscular transmitter that controls muscle functions and bodily and organ movements inside. So using antagonists can block these processes and cause trouble especially with the function of our smooth muscles of the bowel(constipation)bladder(urine retention) and eyes(blurred vision). ...Read more
Think yours are low?: This is about the nervous system. What makes you think your "levels" are low? Neurotransmitters don't HAVE "levels". They don't just float around or circulate in blood. They're made in the terminal boutons of neurons, released into the synaptic cleft, & immediately either recycled & replaced or taken back up. Neurochemistry isn't just a New Age fad. REAL knowledge is power. Go arm yourself. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What are the effects of too high/too low acetylcholine levels on the muscle during swimming practice?
If I have acetylcholine deficiency will be able to lift weights as much as a normal person can ? What if I have higher acetylcholine will i be able to lift more than a normal person?
My thoughts: Not clear what you really want. Acetylcholine does mediate neuromuscular transmission, and if malfunctioning, due to diseases, such as myasthenia, spider bites, botulism, fertilizer sprays. Level drops in brain due to alzheimers, but does not affect muscle. Not sure whether you are asking about supplements for muscle growth, but this does not involve ach. ...Read more
different things: Agonists stimulate receptors while antagonists inhibit them. Most often we use the antagonist drugs in treating different diseases. However, those conditions that decrease sputum, sweat or tear production are sometimes treated with an agonist . Pilocarpine (an agonist) is used to treat glaucoma but by a different mechanism as mentioned above. ...Read more
Yes : Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter. It behaves like a key activiting receptors "keyhole" diseases like myasthenia gravis affect the receptor "keyhole". Acetylcholine in its pure form only used inside the eye to constrict the pupil after cataract surgery. Other drugs that mimic its behavior include pilocarpine. Pilocarpine makes pupil smaller and your vision blurry. Great question. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Acetyl-acetylcholine: The simple answer is yes! There are a number of articles about this on the web, many of which would be hard to understand, but some should make sense. ...Read more
ACH synthesis brain: Ach in the brain is produced from acetyl-coa (from glucose metabolism) & from choline, which is actively transported across blood-brain barrier. Most dietary choline comes from phosphatidyl choline (major phospholipid in membranes of plants&animals) acetyl-coa & choline are independently synthesized in neuron cell body & transported along axon to synapse where they are joined into acetylcholine. ...Read more
