Gene: Chrna6 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 6 subunit) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Chrna6
Name: cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 6 subunit
RGD ID: 69281
Description: Predicted to have acetylcholine-gated cation-selective channel activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including chemical synaptic transmission; membrane depolarization; and regulation of secretion by cell. Localizes to integral component of presynaptic membrane and protein-containing complex. Orthologous to human CHRNA6 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 6 subunit); PARTICIPATES IN acetylcholine signaling pathway via nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; bisphenol A; chlorpyrifos.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 6; cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 6 (neuronal); cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha polypeptide 6; neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-6
