  15. What are the functions assoicated with the M3 receptor?
    It is a Gq receptor -> ca2+ and PKC

    • - increase exocrine gland secretions
    • - increase gut peristalsis
    • - increase bladder contraction
    • - bronchoconstriction
    • - increase pupillary sphincter muscle contraction (miosis)
