Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) switch from the embryonic-type (alpha 2 beta gamma delta subunits) to the adult-type (alpha 2 beta epsilon delta subunits), and disappear besides the neuromuscular junctions with the development of trunk and limb skeletal muscles. However, little is known about this process during the embryonic development of masseter muscle. To identify the time course of the nAChR transition from embryonic day (E) 11 to the newborn stage in mouse masseter muscle, we… CONTINUE READING
