Agonist Bindings and their Relationship to Receptor Responses in Heart Muscarinic Receptors
The presence of two subtypes in muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (m-AChR) was well established. One is the M1 subtype, neuronal m-AChR, and the other is M2 subtype, peripheral m-AChR. Now, the presence of many more subtypes is suggested by the evidences from pharmacology and gene technology.
