Abstract

Peter B. Sargent Departments of Stomatology and Physiology and the Neuroscience Graduate Program, University of California, San Francisco, California 941 43-05 1 2 KEY WORDS: calcium, presynaptic, heterologous expression, transsynaptic regu­ lation, channel gating The transmitter acetylcholine (ACh) acts on two different classes of recep­ tors: nicotinic and muscarinic. Nicotinic receptors (nAChRs) are directly gated or ionotropic receptors and are members of a supergene family that also includes glycine, GABAA, and 5-HT 3 receptors. Muscarinic receptors are metabotropic receptors and belong to a different supergene family. In this review, I concentrate on nAChRs expressed by neurons, which are distinct from skeletal muscle nAChRs.
