Gene: Chrna7 (cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha polypeptide 7) Mus musculus
Symbol: Chrna7
Name: cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha polypeptide 7
Description: Exhibits acetylcholine-gated cation-selective channel activity. Predicted to contribute to acetylcholine receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; negative regulation of cytokine production; and regulation of protein metabolic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including axolemma; cholinergic synapse; and integral component of synaptic membrane. Used to study schizophrenia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in schizophrenia. Is expressed in several structures, including hemolymphoid system; nervous system; paravertebral ganglion; retina; and tongue. Orthologous to several human genes including CHRFAM7A (CHRNA7 (exons 5-10) and FAM7A (exons A-E) fusion); PARTICIPATES IN acetylcholine signaling pathway via nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 1,2-dichloroethane; all-trans-retinoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: acetylcholine receptor alpha 7 neural; Acra7; alpha7; alpha7 nicotinic receptor; alpha7-nAChR; nAchR; neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-7
