The Nicotinic Receptor in the Rat Pineal Gland Is an 3 4 Subtype

Abstract

The rat pineal gland contains a high density of neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs). We characterized the pharmacology of the binding sites and function of these receptors, measured the nAChR subunit mRNA, and used subunitspecific antibodies to establish the receptor subtype as defined by subunit composition. In ligand binding studies, [H… (More)
