Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) areligand-gated ion channels formed by a pentameric arrangement ofalpha and beta subunits to create distinct muscle and neuronalreceptors. Neuronal receptors are found throughout the peripheraland central nervous system where they are involved in fast synaptictransmission. This gene encodes an alpha subunit that is widelyexpressed in the brain. The proposed structure for nAChR subunitsis a conserved N-terminal extracellular domain followed by threeconserved transmembrane domains, a variable cytoplasmic loop, afourth conserved transmembrane domain, and a short C-terminalextracellular region. Mutations in this gene cause autosomaldominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy type 4. Single nucleotidepolymorphisms (SNPs) in this gene have been associated withnicotine dependence.
