Previously, we reported that various levels of acetylcholine (ACh), currently known as a neurotransmitter, are detectable in the blood of several mammals including humans and that most blood ACh originates from T-lymphocytes. To investigate whether ACh in the blood acts on lymphocytes and participates in the modulation of immune responses, we have analyzed the expression of mRNA for muscarinic (Ms) ACh receptor subtypes and nicotinic (Nc) ACh receptor subunits using reverse transcription… Expand
