Background of Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-4 antibody

Acetylcholine, released by cholinergic neurons, activates two groups of acetylcholine receptors (AChRs); muscarinic AChRs (mAChRs) which belong to the superfamily of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) and nicotinic AChRs (ChRs) which belong to the ligand-gated ion channel superfamily. ChRs also respond to nicotine, hence their me. These channel receptors are usually non-selective cation channels activated upon ligand binding which ultimately leads to the depolarization of postsyptic cell membranes. To date, 17 different but related subunits of ChRs have been identified and cloned. They consist of a subunits (a1-10), which is responsible for the binding of ligands. In fact, this subunit includes a Cys-loop in the first extracellular domain that is required for agonist binding. The other subunits responsible for making up the active receptor are the Ã? (Ã?1-4), ?, d and e subunits. Structurally, all subunits have the following: a conserved large extracellular N-termil domain, 3 conserved transmembrane domains, a variable cytoplasmic loop and a fourth transmembrane domain with a short extracellular C-termil domain. An active ChR is generally a heteropentamer (homopentamers also exist) of these various subunits organized around a central pore. All a subunits are expressed in neurol cells except for the a1 subunit which is specifically expressed in skeletal muscle. They are also expressed in non-neurol cells such as bronchial epithelial cells, as well lymphocytes. The diversity of these receptors and their functiol organization gives rise to unique properties and functions. The a4Ã?2 receptor composition makes up a high affinity nicotinic receptor. In fact, its upregulation (mainly expressed by the increase of functiol receptors at the membrane and not expression per se) is responsible for the increased appearance of binding sites following nicotine administration. Animal studies have shown that ChR-related mechanisms are involved in attention function. Indeed a4Ã?2 ChR seems to also be involved in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a disease distinguished by a lack of attention, distractibility and hyperactivity. The a4Ã?2 and a7 ChRs appear to be critical in rats for attention and working memory. Also, a a4Ã?2 specific agonist was shown to reduce impulsivity, hyperactivity and attention deficits in adults with ADHD. This same receptor subtype may also be involved in Parkinsonâ??s disease (PD) as smoking and a4Ã?2 ChR agonists show beneficial effects in PD.
