Acetylcholine

Name: Acetylcholine
Description: A neurotransmitter. Acetylcholine in vertebrates is the major transmitter at neuromuscular junctions, autonomic ganglia, parasympathetic effector junctions, a subset of sympathetic effector junctions, and at many sites in the central nervous system. It is generally not used as an administered drug because it is broken down very rapidly by cholinesterases, but it is useful in some ophthalmological applications (MSH).
Is part of: Cholinergic system
Has role: Neurotransmitter
Abbreviation: ACh
Super-category: Biomolecule
