Definitions of NICOTINIC CHOLINERGIC AGONIST
Sort: Oldest first
Drugs that bind to and activate nicotinic cholinergic receptors (RECEPTORS, NICOTINIC). Nicotinic agonists act at postganglionic nicotinic receptors, at neuroeffector junctions in the peripheral nervous system, and at nicotinic receptors in the central nervous system. Agents that function as neuromuscular depolarizing blocking agents are included here because they activate nicotinic receptors, although they are used clinically to block nicotinic transmission.

Word of the day
Fructose 6 P,2 kinase
- An allosteric enzyme regulates glycolysis gluconeogenesis by catalyzing transfer of phosphate group from ATP bisphosphate, effector for other 6-phosphofructokinase, 1. Phosphofructokinase-2 bifunctional: dephosphorylated form is a kinase and the phosphorylated phosphatase that breaks down fructose-2,bisphosphate to yield phosphate.
