Entry term(s) receptores nicotínicos de acetilcolina
Scope note: Una de las dos clases principales de receptores colinérgicos. Los receptores nicotínicos se distinguieron originalmente por su preferencia por la nicotina sobre la muscarina. Estos receptores generalmente se dividen en tipo muscular y tipo neuronal (previamente gangliónicos) sobre la base de su farmacología, biología molecular y las propiedades biofísicas de los canales.

Scope note: One of the two major classes of cholinergic receptors. Nicotinic receptors were originally distinguished by their preference for NICOTINE over MUSCARINE. They are generally divided into muscle-type and neuronal-type (previously ganglionic) based on pharmacology, and subunit composition of the receptors.
