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
