The Function of the ACh Receptor Channel
Among a variety of ion channels the acetylcholine (ACh) receptor channel in skeletal muscle has been studied most extensively in many aspects. Motoneurons release ACh at the neuromuscular junction. Electrophysiologically the frog neuromuscular junction has been the classical preparation and used in the events of discovery of the principle, i.e., the quantal hypothesis for synaptic transmission by Sir Bernard Katz and his colleagues.
