Gene: CHRNA6 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 6 subunit) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CHRNA6
Name: cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 6 subunit
Description: Predicted to have neurotransmitter receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including chemical synaptic transmission; nervous system process; and regulation of membrane potential. Predicted to localize to integral component of plasma membrane; neuron projection; and synapse.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: acetylcholine receptor, nicotinic, alpha 6 (neuronal); CHNRA6; cholinergic receptor, nicotinic alpha 6; cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 6 (neuronal); cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha polypeptide 6; neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-6
