Gene Information

human ... CHRNA7(89832)

General description

Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit α-7 (CHRNA7 or NACHRA7) is a subunit of a member of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor family. These proteins are hetero-pentamers composed of homologous subunits. Upon acetylcholine binding the receptor undergoes a conformational change resulting in an open ion channel. CHRNA7 is found highly expressed in the hippocampus localized to GABAergic neurons.

Immunogen

Synthetic peptide directed towards the middle region of human CHRNA7

Biochem/physiol Actions

The protein encoded by CHRNA7 displays marked permeability to calcium ions and is a major component of brain nicotinic receptors that are blocked by, and highly sensitive to, alpha-bungarotoxin. Once this receptor binds acetylcholine, it undergoes an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane. This gene is located in a region identified as a major susceptibility locus for juvenile myoclonic epilepsy and a chromosomal location involved in the genetic transmission of schizophrenia.

Sequence
