Temperature dependence of acetylcholine receptor channels activated by different agonists.

Abstract

The temperature dependence of agonist binding and channel gating were measured for wild-type adult neuromuscular acetylcholine receptors activated by acetylcholine, carbamylcholine, or choline. With acetylcholine, temperature changed the gating rate constants (Q(10) ≈ 3.2) but had almost no effect on the equilibrium constant. The enthalpy change associated… (More)
