RIC3 is a protein associated with nicotinic acetylcholinereceptors (nAChRs), neurotransmitter-gated ion channels expressedat the neuromuscular junction and within the central and peripheralnervous systems, that can enhance functional expression of multiplenAChR subtypes (Lansdell et al., 2005 [PubMed 16120769]).[suppliedby OMIM].
