Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Alpha-conotoxins act on postsynaptic membranes, they bind to the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) and thus inhibit them. Blocks mammalian nAChR composed of alpha-1/gamma and alpha-1/delta subunits. Blocks central nervous system nAChR composed of alpha-4/beta-2 subunits and peripheral nervous system nAChR composed of alpha-3/beta-4 subunits. Low toxin concentrations potentiate currents in muscle nAChR composed of alpha-1/beta-1/gamma/delta subunits and central nervous system nAChR composed of alpha-4/beta-2 subunits, but not peripheral nervous system nAChR composed of alpha-3/beta-4 subunits.2 Publications
