Biochem/physiol Actions

Carbachol elicits tear fluid secretion by interacting with muscarinic receptors. It is an analog of acetylcholine and an antiglaucoma drug. In ciliary processes, carbachol along with nitric oxide (NO) regulates Na+ and K+-ATPase activity. It stimulates insulin vesicles transport to the secretory site to increase insulin secretion.
Non-selective cholinergic agonist that is resistant to the action of cholinesterases; inhibits apoptotic death of cultured neurons, and may induce apoptosis in thymocytes.
