Objective: To study roles of cholinergic M2 and M3 receptors in the motility reduction of small intestine SI in spleen qi deficiency. Methods: 16 male SD rats were randomly divided in the control group and spleen qi deficiency group model group—8 rats each group; spleen qi deficiency model of the improper diet and overfatigue was established; the SI propelling rate SIPR was used to evaluate the SI motility; ELISA was used to measure concentrations of acetylcholine ACh, cyclic adenosine monophosphate cAMP and protein kinase A PKA in the SI tissue; immohistochemistry was employed to detect expressions of cholinergic M2 and M3 receptors. Results: Compared with those in the control group, SIPR was reduced; expression of M2 receptors was increased; and expression of M3 receptors and concentrations of cAMP and PKA were decreased, significantly, in the model group. Conclusions: Expression imbalance of cholinergic M2 and M3 receptors might contribute to the motility reduction of the SI in spleen qi deficiency.
