Acetylcholine is the predominant neurotransmitter in the neuromuscular junction, and a role in bone has been postulated. The expression of nicotinic receptors has been reported in osteoblasts, but the expression and function of muscarinic receptor in bone remain obscure. In this study, we investigated the expression and functional activities of muscarinic receptor subtypes in human osteoblast cell lines and animal and human bone tissue. The mRNA levels of muscarinic receptor subtypes were… CONTINUE READING
