RIC-3 staining in mouse olfactory bulb shows staining in the external plexiform layer (EPL) and in some glomeruli (G). Arrows point at glomeruli with RIC-3 positive core. B. RIC-3 staining in mouse fornix is detected in neuronal profiles (vertical arrows) and neuronal processes (horizontal arrow). Cell nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue).
      • RIC-3 (Resistance to inhibitors of cholinesterase 3) is a conserved endoplasmic reticulum-resident protein that is known to be a chaperone for the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) and for the serotonin (5-HT3) channels1.

        RIC-3 affects the maturation of multiple nAChRs which has been shown to facilitate nAChR assembly and trafficking3,4.

        Multiple transcripts of RIC-3 displaying differential expression are detected in humans. The full-length transcript includes two transmembrane domains followed by a coiled-coil domain, a nonconserved N-terminus and C-terminus domain, which includes a second coiled-coil domain. The short isoform lacks the coiled-coil domains and is very conserved in mammals1,2,4.
