a7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor
acetylcholine receptor, neuronal nicotinic, alpha-7 subunit
Function After binding acetylcholine, the AChR responds by an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane. The channel is blocked by alpha-bungarotoxin.
Sequence similarities Belongs to the ligand-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.9) family. Acetylcholine receptor (TC 1.A.9.1) subfamily. Alpha-7/CHRNA7 sub-subfamily.
Cellular localization Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane. Cell membrane.
