The cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway meets microRNA.


Journal Article

Acetylcholine is a cellular mediator selected early in evolution as a key neurotransmitter, but its other biological roles including immune-modulation remain to be elucidated. In a recent paper published in Cell Research, Sun et al. report that acetylcholine modulates cytokine production in macrophages via microRNA-124.
