Previously, studies have demonstrated that eccrine sweat glands are innervated by both cholinergic and adrenergic nerves, with cholinergic nerves playing the primary roles.[1],[9] However, it is unknown whether the secretory coils and ducts of eccrine sweat glands are equally innervated by the sympathetic nerve fibers.
Airway smooth muscles that play important role in airway diameter are innervated by cholinergic, adrenergic and non cholinergic- non adrenergic nerves. So activation of cholinergic muscarinic receptor causes bronchoconstriction [5-11].
There is evidence indicating the involvement of renal adrenergic nerves in the regulation of renal vascular resistance (RVR) and, ultimately, renal haemodynamics (10,11).
