Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors induce the expression of the immediate early growth regulatory gene CYR61.

Abstract

In brain, muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChRs) modulate neuronal functions including long term potentiation and synaptic plasticity in neuronal circuits that are involved in learning and memory formation. To identify mAChR-inducible genes, we used a differential display approach and found that mAChRs rapidly induced transcription of the immediate… (More)
