The potential use of nicotinic cholinergic signaling in the treatment of metabolic diseases and the browsing functions of nAChRs in adipose tissue and pancreatic islet biology are focused on.
Endocardial endothelium in the avascular frog heart: role for diffusion of NO in control of cardiac O2 consumption.
It appears that the EE of the frog heart is the sole source of NO to regulate myocyte O(2) consumption, and produces enough NO, which diffuses from the EE to cardiac myocytes, to regulate the myocardial O( 2) consumption.
