Does abnormal expression of acetylcholine receptors in Hirschsprung's disease induce acetylcholine esterase positive nerve fibres?

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Alpha bungarotoxin (alpha-BTX) is a neurotoxin isolated from the venom of Bungarus multicinctus that binds specifically to the beta-subunits of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) on myotube membranes. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the distribution of alpha-BTX-sensitive nAChR in Hirschsprung's disease (HD) to… (More)
