Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit beta-2

Name: Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit beta-2
Description: A protein that is a translation product of the CHRNB2 gene or a 1:1 ortholog thereof. Neuronal acetylcholine receptors are homo- or heteropentameric complexes composed of homologous alpha and beta subunits. They belong to a superfamily of ligand-gated ion channels which allow the flow of sodium and potassium across the plasma membrane in response to ligands such as acetylcholine and nicotine. This gene encodes one of several beta subunits. Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy. (Adapted from PRotein Ontoloty and Entrez Gene).
Synonym(s): CHRNB2, EFNL3, nAChRB2, Cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, beta 2
Abbreviation: NACHRB2
Is part of: Cholinergic system
