Cross-inhibition between nicotinic acetylcholine receptors and P2X receptors in myenteric neurons and HEK-293 cells.

Abstract

The enteric nervous system (ENS) controls gut function. P2X receptors and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are ligand-gated cation channels that mediate fast synaptic excitation in the ENS. Close molecular coupling in enteric neuronal membranes contributes to a mutually inhibitory interaction between these receptors; this effect is called cross… (More)
