which neurotransmitter is used by both sympathetic and parasympathetic ANS
mediates sympathetic control of some organ function
what type of receptor is utilized by ACH at the ganglion
what type of receptor is utilized by ACH at the organ level
Norepinephrine and not ACH controls
metabolism (gluconeogenesis, glycogenolysis), Kidney (renin release), eye (increased aqueous humor production
ACH and not NE controls
secretion (lacrimation, salivation, sweating, GI secretions)
NE and ACH both control
Cardiac (force rate), smooth muscle (eye, vasculature, uterus, bronchioles, GI, GU)
two types of receptor motifs
ionotropic and metabotropic
ion channels nicotinic cholinergic receptors, mostly fast on off transduction
7 transmembrane g proteins, muscarinic cholinergic recptors. Pre and post synaptic
a2 think
pre synaptic
norepinphrine controls
adrenergic receptors
adrenergic receptors
alpha 1,2, beta 1,2
a1 is always
smooth muscle on lungs relaxation
ACH controls what receptors
cholinergic receptors
cholinergic receptors
nicotine and muscarinic

ganglionic, NMJ
all b receptors produce
cAMP activates
in smooth muscle PKA does what
inactivates MLCK
a2 found in what and do what
neurons, decrease cAMP production

Gq does what
activates Phospholipase C which cleaves a lipid signaling molecule PIP2 to IP3
muscarinics and a1 generally produce
2nd messenger m1,m3
gq, IP3 and DAG
2nd messenger m2
Gi, increased gK activation in heart, decreased cAMP
location of m1

mad 2
Gi, hate adenyl cyclase decrease cAMP and PKA
b1, b2, D1, H2, V2
H1, a1, M1, M3
Gq, PLC to pip2- IP3 increase Ca or PLC to pip2 to dag to PKC
how does the parasympathetic sys cause relaxation
indirectly via Muscarinic receptors which release NO
b2 cause what
activation of metabolism increase gluconeogenesis, glycogenolysis and lipid metabolism
b1 cause what and where
activation cardiac (increase force and rate), kidney increase renin release, eye increase aqueous humor production
B2 cause what and where
relaxation vasculature skeletal muscles, uterus, bronchioles, GI and GU walls
a1 cause what and where
contraction eye, vasculature , sphincters of GU and GI
explain NE and ACH control of cardiac fxn
NE B1 increase force and rate, ACH M2 decrease force and rate
NE does what does what to cardiac myocyte
B1 activation of Gs, increase cAMP and open calcium channel for depolarization
ACH does what to the heart
M2, Gi K+ out, hyperpolarization
a1 location
vasculature of organs, gut sphincters, eye radial muscle, GU sphincters
a1 fx
sympathetic effects, slows defecation, urination, widens pupils, shunts blood
a1 activates
gq, PLC IP3 and DAG activates MLCK
M3 location
gut walls, eye ciliary, circular, GU walls, bronchi
M3 fx
parasympathetic effects, defecation, urination, constricts pupils
b2 activate
Gs, cAMP PKA phosphorylate MLCK SM relaxation
muscarinic SM relaxation
NO diffuses GC to cGMP- PKG kinase and efflux of K+
iris contracts causes
pupil dilation
what receptor causes an increase in pupil diameter
what receptor causes aqueous humor outflow and accomodation
a2 in eye fx
inhibits NE release
b1 fx in eye
aqueous humor production
a2 fx in eye
mydriasis, open pupils radial muscle contraction
m3 fx in eye
ciliary muscle contraction (accomodation increase aquease humor outflow), circular muscle contraction (closes pupil)
b2 fx on skeletal muscle
