Descriptor English: Acetylcholine
Descriptor Spanish: Acetilcolina
Descriptor acetilcolina
Scope note: Es un neurotransmisor. En los vertebrados es el principal neurotransmisor en las uniones neuromusculares, ganglios autónomos, uniones efectoras parasimpáticas, un subgrupo de uniones efectoras simpáticas y en muchas localizaciones del sistema nervioso central. Generalmente no se utiliza como fármaco porque es degradada muy rápidamente por las colinesterasas pero es útil en algunas aplicaciones oculares.
