The effect of parasympathetic nervous system on hydrodynamics of intraocular fluids and distribution of electrolytes and amino acids

Acta Physiologica Polonica
R Bernat


Tonographic determinations Po and C), cannulation of the anterior chamber and measurements of the secreted aqueous humor volume by the method of posterior-anterior chamber perfusion with inulin solution were carried out in normal eyes, in eyes after parasympathetic denervation and during the action of a cholinergic neurotransmitter under the conditions of postdenervation hyperexcitability. Parasympathetic denervation of the eyeball was obtained by excision of the ciliary ganglion. Additonally, pharmacological blockade of the adrenergic neurons was applied. In the aqueous humor from the posterior and anterior chamber osmolality, as well as concentrations of sodium potassium, calcium, magnesium and total alpha-amino nitrogen were determined. The cholinergic effect on the volume of secreted aqueous humor and on the channels of its outflow was described. This effect was enhanced by the postdenervation hyperexcitability state, indicating a stimulating parasympathetic influence on the passage of electrolytes and amino acids into the intraocular fluids.

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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
