Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-2

Name: Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-2
Description: A protein that is a translation product of the CHRNA2 gene or a 1:1 ortholog thereof. Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are ligand-gated ion channels formed by a pentameric arrangement of alpha and beta subunits to create distinct muscle and neuronal receptors. Neuronal receptors are found throughout the peripheral and central nervous system where they are involved in fast synaptic transmission.(Provided by RefSeq and PRotein Ontology).
Synonym(s): Nicotinic α2 receptor, CHOLINERGIC RECEPTOR NEURONAL NICOTINIC ALPHA POLYPEPTIDE 2, CHRNA2, Nicotinic alpha 2 receptor, Alpha 2 Acetylcholine receptor
Is part of: Cholinergic system
Related to: Acetylcholine, Nicotine
Has role: Acetylcholine Receptor, Neurotransmitter Receptor, Ion Channel
