Sample text

All autonomic ganglia have nicotinic receptors. 2. All receptors at the neuromuscular junction are nicotinic receptors. 3. All target organs of the parasympathetic nervous system have muscarinic receptors. Of course, there are other cholinergic receptors, such as those located in the central nervous system (CNS) and in sweat glands innervated by the sympathetic nervous system. Concentrate on learning the three types listed above for now and add the others later. The indirect-acting cholinomimetics act by blocking the metabolism of acetylcholine by cholinesterases.

For example, rifampin induces CYP3A4 which can increase metabolism of estrogen, thus reducing the effectiveness of birth control pills. Some textbooks include lists of drugs that inhibit or induce CYP3A4. Don’t try to memorize these lists. Be aware of the potential problem and learn the most commonly interacting drugs as you gain experience. There are also known genetic variations in levels of CYP450 enzymes. Phase II reactions are conjugation reactions. These combine a glucuronic acid, sulfuric acid, acetic acid, or an amino acid with the drug molecule to make it more polar.

In the parasympathetic system, the ganglia are located closer to the target organs (they are not fixed along the vertebral column). Therefore, the preganglionic axons tend to be longer and the postganglionic fibers are shorter. Within the parasympathetic system, one presynaptic axon tends to form a synapse with only one or two postganglionic cells, giving the parasympathetic system a more localized action. All of the parasympathetic postganglionic fibers release acetylcholine. At the target organ acetylcholine interacts with muscarinic receptors.
