Local elementary purinergic-induced Ca2+ transients: from optical mapping of nerve activity to local Ca2+ signaling networks


The autonomic nervous system regulates smooth muscle contractility through both sympathetic and parasympa-thetic influences. In some tissues, such as the urinary bladder, parasympathetic influences predominate and nerves communicate to detrusor smooth muscle through the release of acetylcholine (ACh). In other tissues, such as the vas deferens and… (More)
