Abstract

Parasympathetic innervation of the heart plays an important role in the dynamic control of cardiac function. Biochemical approaches used to study cardiac vagal innervation have included measurement of levels of acetylcholine (ACh) (1, 2, 22, 33), and the activities of both choline acetyltransferase (8, 28, 30) and cholinesterase (32). These methods have been useful in characterizing the normal distribution of cardiac vagal innervation and its alterations following certain perturbations such as bilateral or unilateral vagotomy and transplantation.
