      • Alomone Labs αC-Conotoxin PrXA inhibits muscle α1/β1/γ/δ nAChR heterologously expressed in Xenopus oocytes.
        A. Time course of αC-Conotoxin PrXA (#STC-620) action on muscle α1/β1/γ/δ nAChR. Current amplitudes were plotted as a function of time. Membrane potential was held at –80 mV and oocytes were stimulated by exposure to 100 μM acetylcholine every 100 seconds. 20 nM (for 6 min) αC-Conotoxin PrXA were perfused during the period marked by the bar, as indicated. B. Superimposed traces of muscle nAChR channel current in the absence (black) and presence (green) of 20 nM αC-Conotoxin PrxA (taken from the experiment in A).
      • αC-Conotoxin PrXA is a synthetic peptide purified to homogeneity, originally isolated from the Conus parius venom1. αC-Conotoxin PrXA reversibly blocks both adult and fetal mammalian muscle α1/β1/ε/δ and α1/β1/γ/δ nicotinic ACh receptors1.
    Target α1/β1/γ/δ nAChR
