Although neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors from insects have been reconstituted in vitro more than a decade ago, our knowledge about the subunit composition of native receptors as well as their functional properties still remains limited. Immunohistochemical evidence has suggested that two alpha subunits, alpha-like subunit (ALS) and Drosophila alpha2 subunit (Dalpha2), are colocalized in the synaptic neuropil of the Drosophila CNS and therefore may be subunits of the same receptor… CONTINUE READING
