The integrated function of the nervous system depends on specific and rapid transmission of signals between its constituent cells. The nicotinic acetylcholine receptor is the best known of a group of membrane-bound proteins responsible for such transmission; for this process to occur, a specific neurotransmitter, in this case acetylcholine, must bind to the(More)
The mammalian nicotinic acetylcholine receptor in PC12 cells has many properties characteristic of the neuronal receptors involved in key chemical reactions that are responsible for signal transmission between cells of the nervous system. This report describes initial investigations of the mechanism of this receptor using a rapid chemical kinetic technique(More)
