Acetylcholine as a neurotransmitter in the vertebrate retina

Experimental Eye Research
J B Hutchins

Abstract

The evidence for the existence of acetylcholine as a neurotransmitter in the vertebrate retina is reviewed. There is evidence for the existence of a cholinergic system in every retina studied to date; therefore, it appears that acetylcholine is both essential and ubiquitous at this level of the visual system. Particular attention is directed to descriptions of the possible functions of acetylcholine in the retina, and formation of testable models which will serve to elucidate some of the details of cholinergic neurotransmission in the retina.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
