The activation of SERCA and muscarinic receptors mediates these effects, and NO is not involved in the cardiovascular effects of DECC.
Muscarinic receptors are present in various areas of the brain, which are innervated by cholinergic neurons, both on neurons and glias, and both on postsynaptic and presynaptic membranes.
Dry mouth, constipation, and blurred vision are caused by the drugs binding to muscarinic receptors in the salivary glands, gastrointestinal tract, and ciliary muscle of the eyes (Abrams & Andersson, 2007).
To assess whether nitric oxide, cGMP, phosphodiesterase-5, [K.sup.+.sub.ATP] channels, prostanoid, betareceptor, L-type calcium channels, or muscarinic receptors are related to the relaxant mechanisms induced by ayanin, this flavonoid was added to rings contracted with PE treated 30 min.
The effects observed for the selective antagonists suggested that chagasic rats have alterations on the muscarinic receptors distributions in the central vagal nuclei, cardiac intrinsic ganglion or cardiac muscle cells.
Normal bladder contraction results from cholinergic innervation by the parasympathetic nervous system and activation of muscarinic receptors on the detrusor muscle.
