Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B
Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, also known as nAChRs, belong to a family of proteins called ligand gated ion channels and are widely expressed throughout the nervous system. nAChRs are made up of 5 subunits (two alpha and three beta). Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor a5 has an ax ay beta combination. In the CNS, the a5 subunit is widely expressed in the CA1 area of the hippocampus which affects learning, memory, attention, anxiety, and potentially drug seeking behaviors.
