CHNRA6, Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-6, CHRNA6.
Cholinergic Receptor Nicotinic, Alpha 6 (CHRNA6) is a part of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) family. nAChRs are heteropentameric ligand-gated ion channels generating from the assembly of alpha and beta protein subunits. After binding acetylcholine, the AChRs respond by a major change in conformation which affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane. CHRNA6 receptors have a rather selective localization to the nigrostriatal pathway.
CHRNA6 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 250 amino acids (26-239 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 29.3kDa.
CHRNA6 is fused to a 36 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
CHRNA6 protein solution (1mg/ml) containing 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.4M Urea and 10% glycerol.
