We conclude that residues in the M2 segment and flanking regions contribute to the unusual properties of the CHRNA7 receptor
Loop 3 and its docking to the alpha-helix is an important requirement for receptor assembly of the alpha7 nicotinic receptor.
a network of interactions formed by residues Lys (show LYZ ELISA Kits)-46, Asp (show ASIP ELISA Kits)-128, Asp (show ASIP ELISA Kits)-135, Asp (show ASIP ELISA Kits)-266, and possibly others appears to link agonist binding to channel gating
The nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are members of a superfamily of ligand-gated ion channels that mediate fast signal transmission at synapses. The nAChRs are thought to be hetero-pentamers composed of homologous subunits. The proposed structure for each subunit is a conserved N-terminal extracellular domain followed by three conserved transmembrane domains, a variable cytoplasmic loop, a fourth conserved transmembrane domain, and a short C-terminal extracellular region. The protein encoded by this gene forms a homo-oligomeric channel, displays marked permeability to calcium ions and is a major component of brain nicotinic receptors that are blocked by, and highly sensitive to, alpha-bungarotoxin. Once this receptor binds acetylcholine, it undergoes an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane. This gene is located in a region identified as a major susceptibility locus for juvenile myoclonic epilepsy and a chromosomal location involved in the genetic transmission of schizophrenia. An evolutionarily recent partial duplication event in this region results in a hybrid containing sequence from this gene and a novel FAM7A gene. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
