We have shown previously that the lipophilic photoreagent 3-(trifluoromethyl)3-m-([125I]iodophenyl)-diazirine ([125I]TID) photolabels all four subunits of the Torpedo nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (AChR) and that greater than 70% of this photoincorporation is inhibited by cholinergic agonists and some noncompetitive antagonists, including… CONTINUE READING
