Literature associating CHRNA7 and nicotine dependence

CHRNA7 [ENSP00000407546]

Cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 7 (neuronal); 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. The channel is blocked by alpha-bungarotoxin; Cholinergic receptors nicotinic subunits
