About This Section

Entrez Gene summary for CHRNA6 Gene:
This gene encodes an alpha subunit of neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. These receptors consist of five
subunits and function as ion channels involved in neurotransmission. The encoded protein is a subunit of neuronal
nicotinic acetylcholine receptors that mediate dopaminergic neurotransmission and are activated by acetylcholine
and exogenous nicotine. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. Single
nucleotide polymorphisms in this gene have been associated with both nicotine and alcohol dependence. (provided
by RefSeq, Dec 2010)

GeneCards Summary for CHRNA6 Gene: 
CHRNA6 (cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 6 (neuronal)) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with CHRNA6 include autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy, and frontal lobe epilepsy, and among its related super-pathways are Nicotine Pathway (Dopaminergic Neuron), Pharmacodynamics and Presynaptic nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. GO annotations related to this gene include acetylcholine-activated cation-selective channel activity and acetylcholine receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is CHRNA5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: ACHA6_HUMAN, Q15825
Function: After binding acetylcholine, the AChR responds by an extensive change in conformation that affects all
subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane
