Nicotinic receptor subunit alpha5 modifies assembly, up-regulation, and response to pro-inflammatory cytokines.
Rogers et al., Salt Lake City, United States. In J Biol Chem, 2010
alpha5 is an influential modulator of alpha4+beta2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor assembly and stabilizes their expression in response to fluctuations in external conditions.
Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors containing subunits alpha3 and alpha5 in rat nociceptive dorsal root ganglion neurons.
Haberberger et al., Gießen, Germany. In J Mol Neurosci, 2005
Calcium-imaging and double-labeling immunofluorescence with alpha-subunit-specific antibodies, in combination with markers for nociceptive neurons are examined.
Knock down of the alpha 5 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor in spinal nerve-ligated rats alleviates mechanical allodynia.
Eisenach et al., Winston-Salem, United States. In Pharmacol Biochem Behav, 2005
Increased expression of the alpha 5 nAChR subunit following spinal nerve ligation contributes to spinal cAMP response element-binding protein phosphorylation and the maintenance of mechanical allodynia.
Mapping of multiple subunits of the neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor to chromosome 15 in man and chromosome 9 in mouse.
Zoghbi et al., Houston, United States. In Genomics, 1991
The alpha 3, alpha 5, and beta 4 genes (human gene symbols CHRNA3, CHRNA5, and CHRNB4 respectively; mouse gene symbols Acra-3, Acra-5, and Acrb-4, respectively) are members of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor gene family and are clustered within a 68-kb segment of the rat genome (Boulter et al., 1990, J.
