Gene: Chrna3 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 3 subunit) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Chrna3
Name: cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 3 subunit
Description: Exhibits acetylcholine binding activity, neurotransmitter receptor activity, and protein heterodimerization activity; predicted to contribute to extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity; involved in several processes, including acetylcholine receptor signaling pathway, heart development, and protein heterooligomerization; localizes to several cellular components, including the cholinergic synapse, dendrite, and intrinsic component of plasma membrane; used to study visual epilepsy; orthologous to human CHRNA3 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 3 subunit); PARTICIPATES IN acetylcholine signaling pathway via nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; nicotine pharmacodynamics pathway; nicotine pharmacokinetics pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-anabasine; (S)-nicotine; 3H-1,2-dithiole-3-thione.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: Acetylcholine receptor alpha 3 (neuronal nicotine); acetylcholine receptor alpha3; cetylcholine receptor alpha 3 (neuronal nicotine); cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha polypeptide 4; cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 3; cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 3 (neuronal); cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha polypeptide 3; neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-3
