Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (AChRs) immunoaffinity-purified from brains are composed of only two kinds of subunits rather than the four kinds present in muscle-type AChRs. Here we report the N-terminal protein sequences of the structural subunits of AChRs from rat and chicken brains and the cloning of full-length cDNAs for the chicken brain AChR structural subunit. Previously, the N-terminal amino acid sequence of the ACh-binding subunit of AChR immunoaffinity-purified from rat brain was… CONTINUE READING
