The m2 muscarinic acetylcholine receptor gene is expressed at high levels in basal forebrain, but the paucity of information about localization of the encoded receptor protein has limited the understanding of cellular and subcellular mechanisms involved in cholinergic actions in this region. The present study sought to determine the cellular localization of m2 protein, its relationship to cholinergic neurons, and its pre- and postsynaptic distribution in the rat medial septum-diagonal band… CONTINUE READING
