1. We constructed rat homologues (S252F and +L264) of two human alpha4 nicotinic mutations - alpha4(S248F) and alpha4(777ins3) - that have been linked to autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy (ADNFLE) and co-expressed them with wild-type rat beta2 subunits in Xenopus oocytes. 2. The S252F and +L264 mutations had three common effects on the ACh(More)
1 We studied the pharmacological properties of native rat brain and heterologously expressed rat alpha4beta2 nicotinic receptors immunoprecipitated onto a fixed substrate with the anti-alpha4 antibody mAb 299. 2 Immunodepletion with the anti-beta2 antibody mAb 270 showed that 89% of the mAb-299-precipitated rat brain receptors contained beta2. 3 The(More)
