"A G protein-binding domain within the α7 nicotinic receptor enables downstream calcium signaling beyond the time course of channel activation"

α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) play an important role in synaptic transmission via regulation of intracellular signaling pathways. In recent studies, we demonstrated an important functional role for α7 nAChR interactions with intracellular heterotrimeric GTP binding proteins (G proteins) in cell signaling.
