Lipid-protein interactions and nicotinic acetylcholine receptor function

Abstract:

The effect of bilayer composition, specifically the presence of cholesterol, upon the function of the reconstituted nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAcChoR) was investigated using stopped-flow fluorescence. The nAcChoR was purified and reconstituted from the electroplaques of Torpedo nobiliana, using affinity column chromatography, into bilayers of defined composition and the function of each sample assessed and compared with tho...
