In vivo studies on receptor pharmacology of the human eccrine sweat gland

Abstract

The receptor pharmacology of the human sweat gland was studiedin vivo. The axon-reflex response was mediated by nicotinic receptors which were activated by nicotine and acetylcholine, but not pilocarpine, and inhibited by hexamethonium. The direct response was mainly muscarinic, responding to pilocarpine and acetylcholine. A component of the direct response… (More)
