cDNAs encoding a novel nAChR structural subunit (GFn alpha-3) and a ligand-binding subunit (GF alpha-3) have been isolated from a goldfish retina cDNA library. The protein encoded by GFn alpha-3 shares 88% amino acid similarity with that encoded by GFn alpha-2, a structural subunit gene previously identified to be expressed in this system (Cauley et al., 1989). The ligand-binding subunit (GF alpha-3) is likely the goldfish homolog of the rat alpha-3 gene (Boulter et al., 1986). Northern blots… CONTINUE READING
