Natriuresis induced by cholinergic stimulation of the locus coeruleus in the rat
Carbachol injected into the locus coeruleus (LC) induced a dose-dependent natriuresis in the rat. This natriuresis was maintained above control levels during the 120 min of urine sampling. Seizures and arterial blood ...
Role of the adrenergic pathways of the lateral hypothalamus on water intake and pressor response induced by the cholinergic activation of the medial septal area in rats
(Elsevier B.V., 1994-02-14)
In the present experiments, we investigated a possible involvement of noradrenergic receptors of the lateral hypothalamus (LH) in the water intake and pressor response induced by cholinergic stimulation of the medial septal ...
Nicotonic and muscarinic components in acetylcholine stimulation of porcine adrenal medullary cells
Adrenal medullary chromaffin cells secrete catecholamines (CA) in response to cholinergic receptor activation by acetylcholine (ACh) released from splacnic nerve terminals. In cultured bovine chromaffin cells nicotinic ...
Role of cholinergic and adrenergic pathways of the medial septal area in the control of water intake and renal excretion in rats
(Elsevier B.V., 1992-05-01)
In this study, we investigated an interaction between noradrenergic and cholinergic pathways of the medial septal area (MSA) on the control of water intake and urinary electrolyte excretion by means of injection of their ...
Elevated Hippocampal Cholinergic Neurostimulating Peptide precursor protein (HCNP-pp) mRNA in the amygdala in major depression
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2015-04)
The amygdala is innervated by the cholinergic system and is involved in major depressive disorder (MDD). Evidence suggests a hyper-activate cholinergic system in MDD. Hippocampal Cholinergic Neurostimulating Peptide (HCNP) ...
Cholinergic drugs as therapeutic tools in inflammatory diseases: participation of neuronal and non-neuronal cholinergic systems
Acetylcholine (ACh) is synthesized by choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) from acetylcoenzime A and choline. This reaction occurs not only in pre-ganglionic fibers of the autonomic nervous system and post-ganglionic parasympathetic ...
