Cholinergic Receptors- respond to acetylcholine
Nicotinic – found at all autonomic ganglia and as
excitatory receptors for skeletal muscles.
Muscarinic – found at parasympathetic target
organs and at certain sympathetic targets:
e.g. eccrine sweat glands (thermoregulation)
blood vessels to skeletal muscles (vasodilation)
Types depend on stimulation by nicotine or muscarine:
The term cholinergic refers to those receptors which respond to the
transmitter acetylcholine. Mostly these are parasympathetic. There are two
types of cholinergic receptors, classified according to whether they are
stimulated by the drug nicotine or by the drug muscarine. The significance
is that certain clinical drugs can be used to stimulate or inhibit one type of
cholinergic receptor without affecting other types.
1) nicotinic receptors are found at all autonomic ganglia, and at the
neuromuscular junctions of skeletal muscles.
2) muscarinic receptors are found at parasympathetic target organs and at
certain sympathetic targets - the eccrine sweat glands (which produces
copious secretion in thermoregulation to r...
