Parasympathetic Modulation of Local Acute Inflammation in Murine Submandibular Glands

Abstract

The parasympathetic nervous system controls submandibular glands (SMG) functions in physiological and pathological conditions via muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAchR). We had previously demonstrated that IFNγ and carbachol stimulate amylase secretion in normal murine SMG by mAchR activation. While the cytokine action depended on nitric oxide synthase… (More)
