Euler in the 1940's conclusively identified sympathin as noradrenahne. This transmitter is released from all stimulated post-ganglionic sympathetic fibres except those to certain sweat glands and vasodilator fibres in man, which were discovered to be cholinergic (Dale and Feldberg, 1934). The steps in the enzymatic synthesis of noradrenaline and adrenaline (known in the USA as norepinephrine and epinephrine, respectively) were proposed by Blaschko (1939) and confirmed by demonstration (using radioactive labelled phenylalanine in rats) by Gurin and Delluva (1947), are as follows.

They thus act indirectly, promoting the effects of prolonged cholinergic neurone stimulation. This group of agents can be subdivided into reversible antichohnesterase drugs (for example, physostigmine and neostigmine), their effects being of comparatively short duration (up to 12 hours or so), and irreversible anticholinesterases (for example, such organophosphorous compounds as di-isopropylfluorophosphonate, usually known as Dyflos or D F P in Great Britain, and isoflurophate in America), their effects lasting days or weeks.
