P2RX7 belongs to the family ofpurinoceptors for ATP. This receptor functions as a ligand-gatedion channel and is responsible for ATP-dependent lysis ofmacrophages through the formation of membrane pores permeable tolarge molecules. Activation of this nuclear receptor by ATP in thecytoplasm may be a mechanism by which cellular activity can becoupled to changes in gene expression.
