    • Acute Lung Injury in Cholinergic-Deficient Mice Supports Anti-Inflammatory Role of α7 Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor 

      Pinheiro, Nathalia Montouro [UNIFESP]; Banzato, Rosana; Tibério, Iolanda de Fátima Lopes Calvo; Prado, Marco Antônio Máximo; Prado, Vania Ferreira; Hamouda, Ayman; Prado, Carla Máximo [UNIFESP] (Nicola Scichilone, 2021-07)
      Abstract: (1) Background: The lung cholinergic pathway is important for controlling pulmonary inflammation in acute lung injury, a condition that is characterized by a sudden onset and intense inflammation. This study ...

    • Expression and localization of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor subtypes in rat efferent ductules and epididymis 

      Siu, Erica Rosanna [UNIFESP]; Yasuhara, Fabiana [UNIFESP]; Marostica, Elisabeth [UNIFESP]; Avellar, Maria Christina Werneck [UNIFESP]; Porto, Catarina Segreti [UNIFESP] (Springer, 2006-01-01)
      The expression of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (mAChR) subtypes (M-1-M-5) was studied in the rat efferent ductules and epididymis at the mRNA and protein levels. the relative abundance of each mAChR transcript subtype ...

    • Functional characterization of acetylcholine receptors and calcium signaling in rat testicular capsule contraction 

      Silva Junior, Edilson Dantas da [UNIFESP]; Souza, Bruno Palmieri de [UNIFESP]; Dantas Rodrigues, Juliano Quintela [UNIFESP]; Caricati-Neto, Afonso [UNIFESP]; Jurkiewicz, Aron [UNIFESP]; Jurkiewicz, Neide Hyppolito [UNIFESP] (Elsevier B.V., 2013-08-15)
      The motor activity of mammalian testicular capsule (TC) contributes to male fertility and infertility, but the acetylcholine receptors related to the contractions induced by cholinergic drugs are poorly known. Indeed to ...
