Asymmetric distribution and down-regulation of the muscarinic acetylcholine receptor in rat cerebral cortex

Abstract

The distribution and down-regulation of the muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (mAChR) were studied in dissociated cells from right (RCC) and left (LCC) cerebral cortex. For this purpose [3H]quinuclidinyl benzilate (QNB) and [3H]pirenzepine (Pz), two muscarinic antagonists, were used. The mAChR binding sites detected with [3H]QNB were asymmetrically… (More)
