Protein

Acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha

Gene

CHRNA1

Organism
Tetronarce californica (Pacific electric ray) (Torpedo californica)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

After binding acetylcholine, the AChR responds by an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane.
