Gene: Chrna4 (cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha polypeptide 4) Mus musculus
Analyze
Symbol: Chrna4
Name: cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha polypeptide 4
Description: Exhibits acetylcholine-gated cation-selective channel activity. Contributes to acetylcholine receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral response to nicotine; chemical synaptic transmission; and regulation of secretion by cell. Localizes to the dopaminergic synapse; external side of plasma membrane; and integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy 1 and nicotine dependence. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CHRNA4 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 4 subunit); PARTICIPATES IN acetylcholine signaling pathway via nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; alfentanil pharmacodynamics pathway; bupivacaine pharmacodynamics pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 1,1-dichloroethene; 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: a4 nicotinic receptor; acetylcholine receptor alpha 4 neural; acetylcholine receptor, neuronal, nicotinic, alpha-4 subunit; Acra-4; Acra4; alpha4 nAChR; alpha4-nAChR; EBN1; ENFL1; neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-4
