Abstract

The nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (AChR) has been extensively studied both from the structural and biologic points of view. It is the only receptor for a neurotransmitter that has been purified and can be prepared in substantial amounts. Characterization of this component has been greatly advanced by the availability of AChR in large quantities in electric organs of electric fish (Nachmansohn, 1959) and by the use of a-neurotoxins from elapid snake venoms which bind specifically and with a high affinity to the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (Lee, 1972).
