Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): human metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in humans (Homo sapiens).
mouse metabolite
Any mammalian metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in a mouse (Mus musculus).
muscarinic agonist
Any drug that binds to and activates a muscarinic cholinergic receptor.
Originally referring to an endogenous compound that is formed in specialized organ or group of cells and carried to another organ or group of cells, in the same organism, upon which it has a specific regulatory function, the term is now commonly used to include non-endogenous, semi-synthetic and fully synthetic analogues of such compounds.
An endogenous compound that is used to transmit information across the synapse between a neuron and another cell.
Application(s): vasodilator agent
A drug used to cause dilation of the blood vessels.
muscarinic agonist
Any drug that binds to and activates a muscarinic cholinergic receptor.
