General description

Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, or nAChRs, are cholinergic receptors that form ligand-gated ion channels in the plasma membranes of certain neurons. nAChR is triggered by the binding of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) and is also opened by nicotine. After binding ACh, the nAChR responds by an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane. nAChRs are present in many tissues in the body: the neuronal receptors are present in the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system; and the neuromuscular receptors are found in the neuromuscular junctions of somatic muscles. Neuronal AChR is composed of two different types of subunits: alpha (α) and beta (β).
