Characterization of central inhibitory muscarinic autoreceptors by the use of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor
A spinosyn-sensitive Drosophila melanogaster nicotinic acetylcholine receptor
identified through chemically induced target site resistance, resistance gene identification, and heterologous expression.
Quantitative analysis of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor
homo- and heterodimerization in live cells: regulation of receptor down-regulation by heterodimerization.
Using the muscle nicotinic acetylcholine receptor
antagonist hexamethonium, we found that the most effective method of drug administration for behavioral experiments was the immersion of sea urchins in drug solution for an hour, coupled with performing the behavioral experiments in the drug solution.
Acting as a noncompetitive antagonist for some neuronal acetylcholine receptors
(5), bupropion is known to have various biological targets; however, the mechanism of action is not completely understood.
ChAT: choline acetyl transferase; VAChT: acetylcholine transporter; AChR: acetylcholine receptor
; AChE: acetylcholine esterase; ChT: choline transporter.

knock-out mice show deficits in behavioral flexibility, working memory, and hippocampal plasticity," The Journal of Neuroscience, vol.
However, the fact that atropine, an antagonist of muscarinic acetylcholine receptors
(18), did not modify the direct vasorelaxation produced by clobenzorex on rat aortic segments excludes the possible involvement of stimulation of muscarinic acetylcholine receptors
in the vasodilator responses produced by this appetite suppressant drug.
Notably, in the past several years, several compounds have been identified as [alpha]7 -nicotinic acetylcholine receptor

clustering," BMC Pharmacology and Toxicology, vol.
In view of the above clinical presentation, MG was suspected and serological workup for MG was obtained which was positive for antibodies to acetylcholine receptor
(AChR) with a titer of 14.6 nanomole/liter (0.0-0.4 nanomole/liter).
Presence of antibodies to the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor
(AChR) is most common, with a positive result in 80% of adults with generalized Myasthenia Gravis .
