Alpha 7 Acetylcholine Receptor

Name: Alpha 7 Acetylcholine Receptor
Description: [[Definition::This receptor it a protein that is a translation product of the CHRNA7 gene or a 1:1 ortholog thereof. NACHRA7 is a type of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, consisting entirely of α7 subunits. As with other nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, functional α7 receptors are pentameric [i.e., (α7)5 stoichiometry]. It is located in the brain, where activation yields post- and presynaptic excitation, mainly by increased Ca2+ permeability. (Definition provided by PRotein Ontology and Wikipedia).]]
