Where would you not find a cholinergic nicotinic receptor?
Cholinergic nicotinic receptors are receptor for acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is the primary neurotransmitter of the parasympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system functions to regulate various bodily processes while a person is at rest (ex: dilation of blood vessels, slowing of the heart rate, digestion).
Physical Applications of 1st Order DE Radium decomposes at a rate proportional to the quantity of radium present. Suppose that it is found that in 25 years approximately 1.1 % of a certain quantity of radium has decomposed. Determine approximately how long it will take for one-half the original amount of radium to decompose.
Physical Applications of 1st Order DE At 1:00 p.m., a thermometer reading 70 0F is taken outside where the air temperature is -10 0F (ten below zero). At 1:02 p.m., the reading is 26 0 At 1:05 p.m., the thermometer is taken back indoors where the air is at 70 0F. What is the thermometer reading at 1:09 p.m.?
Answer to question 1
Answer and Explanation: You would not find a cholinergic nicotinic receptor on parasympathetic target organs. Cholinergic nicotinic receptors function by helping to transmit/send outgoing signals in parasympathetic system. Since these receptors are involved in the transmission of outgoing signals, they are found in the organs that send these signals (ex: skeletal muscle, adrenal glands, medulla). They are not found in the organs that receive these signals, such as the parasympathetic target organs.
