    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    text postsynaptic membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • responding, after binding acetylcholine, by an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane
  • required for the formation of pre-patterned AChR (acetylcholine receptor) clusters, which in turn play an essential role in determining the subsequent pattern of neuromuscular synaptogenesis
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
