A constitutively active G protein-coupled acetylcholine receptor regulates motility of larval Schistosoma mansoni.

The neuromuscular system of helminths controls a variety of essential biological processes and therefore represents a good source of novel drug targets. The neuroactive substance, acetylcholine controls movement of Schistosoma mansoni but the mode of action is poorly understood. Here, we present first evidence of a functional G protein-coupled acetylcholine… CONTINUE READING
