Applications

Acetylcholine chloride acts as an endogenous neurotransmitter at cholinergic synapses. The compound has been shown to have ophthalmological uses and can be broken down quickly by choliesterases. Acetylcholine influences many basic cells functions, such as mitosis, cells differentiation, cytoskeletal organization, and cell to cell contact, among other functions. It reduces mortality and plasma proinflammatory cytokines in mice with experimentally-induced sepsis.The cholinergicanti-infl ammatory mechanism is probably mediated by interaction of acetylcholine with α7n cholinoreceptor on monocytes, macrophages, and neutrophils, which decreases the levels of proinflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6.

Notes

Store away from moisture. Store under dry inert gas. Incompatible with heat,oxidizing agents.
