1 Melatonin modulation of presynaptic nicotinic acetylcholine receptors located on short noradrenergic neurons of the rat vas deferens: a pharmacological characterization. Melatonin arginine vasopressin Rattus norvegicus
2 Melatonin, the pineal hormone produced during the dark phase of the light-dark cycle, modulates neuronal acetylcholine receptors located presynaptically on nerve terminals of the rat vas deferens. Melatonin arginine vasopressin Rattus norvegicus
3 Thus melatonin, by acting directly on the short adrenergic neurons that innervate the rat vas deferens, induces the appearance of the low affinity binding site, probably an alpha7 nAChR subtype. Melatonin arginine vasopressin Rattus norvegicus
