Gene: Chrna4 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 4 subunit) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Chrna4
Name: cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 4 subunit
Description: Exhibits acetylcholine binding activity and acetylcholine-gated cation-selective channel activity. Predicted to contribute to acetylcholine receptor activity and extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity. Involved in cholinergic synaptic transmission; positive regulation of dopamine secretion; and regulation of acetylcholine-gated cation channel activity. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cholinergic synapse; integral component of plasma membrane; and neuronal cell body. Biomarker of congestive heart failure. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy 1 and nicotine dependence. 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)-anabasine; (S)-nicotine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 4; cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 4 (neuronal); cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 4 subunit; cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha polypeptide 4; NARAC; neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-4; neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor alpha 4 subunit
