RELATED TERMS
--------------------------------------

Antagonist
"In biochemistry, an antagonist acts against and blocks an action. For example, insulin lowers the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood, whereas another hormone called glucagon raises it; therefore, insulin and glucagon are antagonists. An antagonist is the opposite of an agonist which stimulates an action. Antagonists and agonists are key players in pharmacology and in the chemistry of the human body."

Cholinergic
Relating to nerve cells or fibers that employ acetylcholine as their neurotransmitter.

Receptors
Areas on the outer part of a cell that allow the cell to join or bind with insulin that is in the blood.
