Gender comparison of muscarinic receptor expression and function in rat and human urinary bladder: differential regulation of M2 and M3 receptors?


Since symptoms of bladder dysfunction occur more frequently in women than in men and since muscarinic receptors are the physiologically most important system to mediate bladder contraction, we have compared the number, subtype distribution and function of muscarinic receptors in bladders from male and female rats. Muscarinic receptor function was also… (More)
