Ligand-gated nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) and purinergic ATP receptors are often expressed in the same peripheral and central neurons, and ATP and acetylcholine (ACh) are stored together in some synaptic vesicles. Evidence has suggested that nAChRs and ATP receptors are not independent and that some agonists strongly cross-activate and desensitize both receptor types. Rat sympathetic neurons and nAChRs expressed in Xenopus oocytes were studied to determine the significance of the… CONTINUE READING
