Abstract

We would like to review two quite different aspects of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (AChR) from Torpedo species. The first is that of the various studies of affinities and cooperativities for ACh binding to this receptor which have been reported and their relation to physiological events; the second is information about the configuration of the receptor which has been obtained by the studies of ACh binding to it.
