Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are ligand-gated ion channels involved in fast synaptic transmission. nAChRs are pentameric receptors formed from a combination of different or similar subunits to produce heteromeric or homomeric channels. The heteromeric, α9α10 nAChR subtype is well-known for its role in the auditory system, being expressed in cochlear hair cells. These nAChRs have also been shown to be involved in immune-modulation. Antagonists of α9α10 nAChRs, like the α-conotoxin...[Show more]
