alpha-Bungarotoxin Receptor .
alpha7 Subunit, nAChR .
A member of the NICOTINIC ACETYLCHOLINE RECEPTOR subfamily of the LIGAND-GATED ION CHANNEL family. It consists entirely of pentameric α7 subunits expressed in the CNS, autonomic nervous system, vascular system, lymphocytes and spleen. .
Bungarotoxins .
alpha-Bungarotoxin .
beta-Bungarotoxin .
kappa-Bungarotoxin .
alpha Bungarotoxin .
beta Bungarotoxin .
kappa Bungarotoxin .
Neurotoxic proteins from the venom of the banded or Formosan krait (Bungarus multicinctus, an elapid snake). alpha-Bungarotoxin blocks nicotinic acetylcholine receptors and has been used to isolate and study them; beta- and gamma-bungarotoxins act presynaptically causing acetylcholine release and depletion. Both alpha and beta forms have been characterized, the alpha being similar to the large, long or Type II neurotoxins from other elapid venoms. .
