Photoaffinity labeling of the Torpedo nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) with [3H]d-tubocurarine (dTC) has identified a residue within the gamma-subunit which, along with the analogous residue in delta-subunit, confers selectivity in binding affinities between the two agonist sites for dTC and alpha-conotoxin (alpha Ctx) MI. nAChR gamma-subunit, isolated from nAChR-rich membranes photolabeled with [3H]dTC, was digested with Staphylococcus aureus V8 protease, and a 3H-labeled fragment was… CONTINUE READING
