AbstractNicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) display a broad variety of subtypes, which in turn present a complex subcellular and regional expression pattern in the brain, as well as a specific pharmacological profile. The association of these nAChRs with different types of brain disease has turned them into interesting drug targets for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease or schizophrenia, or for anti-smoking compounds among others. In the same way, muscle-type nAChRs present at neuromuscular junctions…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
