Gene: Chrnb2 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic beta 2 subunit) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Chrnb2
Name: cholinergic receptor nicotinic beta 2 subunit
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits acetylcholine binding; acetylcholine-activated cation-selective channel activity; drug binding; INVOLVED IN positive regulation of dopamine secretion; protein heterooligomerization; response to nicotine; PARTICIPATES IN acetylcholine signaling pathway via nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; alfentanil pharmacodynamics pathway; bupivacaine pharmacodynamics pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH Alzheimer Disease (ortholog); Anxiety Disorders (ortholog); Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity (ortholog); FOUND IN acetylcholine-gated channel complex; membrane; plasma membrane; INTERACTS WITH (S)-anabasine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; acetylcholine
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: cholinergic receptor nicotinic beta polypeptide 2; cholinergic receptor nicotinic beta subunit 2; cholinergic receptor, nicotinic beta 2; cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, beta 2 (neuronal); cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, beta polypeptide 2; cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, beta polypeptide 2 (neuronal); cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, beta subunit 2; N-alpha 1; neuronal acetylcholine receptor non-alpha-1 chain; neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit beta-2
