The cloning, sequencing and functional expression of Sgbeta1, a novel locust (Schistocerca gregaria) non-alpha nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) subunit is described. This subunit shows 80% identity with the Drosophila melanogaster Dbeta1 and 92% identity with the Locusta migratoria beta1, non-alpha subunits but only 38% identity to Sgalpha1 (also referred to as alphaL1), a previously cloned S. gregaria nAChR alpha-subunit. When expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes, Sgbeta1 does not… CONTINUE READING
