Other Functions of Acetylcholine

Other Functions of Acetylcholine

This neurotransmitter is affected by Avipaxin and Daxitrol

Acetylcholine or simply known as ach is known for its prominent role in the ability to learn. But aside from its primary role, it has actually a lot more functions in the human body particularly as a neuromodulator and its natural involvement in the process of synaptic plasticity. This process happens whenever the brain functions as a long-term memory. Ach helps to keep the memory stored in the brain to last for up to a lifetime and also reduce memory diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

 

The functions of neurotransmitters are not only limited within the brain. Acetylcholine is also needed in both voluntary and involuntary processes in the body such as slowing the heart beat and contraction in the skeletal muscle. Acetylcholine is responsible for opening different sodium channels in the cell membrane by binding the skeletal muscles and the acetylcholine receptors. Afterwards the sodium ions are then triggered to penetrate the muscle cells which cause the muscles to contract. Although acetylcholine is the main neurotransmitter needed to produce contraction of skeletal muscles, it uses other receptors in inhibiting muscle fiber contraction of the cardiac.

 

The functions of ach in the body seem to be very complicated but the chemical processes required synthesizing, transporting, and storing it in the body may sound even more complex. To make acetylcholine available for usage it requires the body to undergo micro processes starting from the conversion of electric impulses to the form of chemical transmitters, and then undergoing enzyme-catalyzed reactions, calcium ion channels, and sodium channels, and then removal of the neurotransmitters used in the preparation, and so on and so forth. So once you think that you used ach in whatever activities that you are doing, realize that your body undergo a lot of chemical reactions in order to produce even the smallest amount of it that is required by your body.
