Natural Compounds Endowed with Cholinergic or Anticholinergic Activity. Enhancement of Acetylcholine Release by a Quaternary Derivative of l-Hyoscyamine


New compounds that target nicotinic receptors (nAChRs) have been sought to correct disorders affecting cholinergic transmission in central and peripheral synapses. A quaternary derivate of l-hyoscyamine, phenthonium (Phen), was shown by our group to enhance the spontaneous acetylcholine (ACh) release without altering the nerve-induced transmitter release at… (More)
