Description:

This paper examines the properties of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) which are a superfamily of ligand gated ion channels responsible for controlling the electric signaling of fast synaptic transmissions. According to the paper, abnormal function of these receptors is tied to many neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's diseases, schizophrenia, anxiety etc. Hence, it is understandable that the mechanism and structure-activity relationships of the agonist /antagonist interactions with nAChRs are in the center of intense research.
