    1.Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, or nAChRs, are cholinergic receptors that form ligand-gated ion channels in the plasma membranes of certain neurons and on the postsynaptic side of the neuromuscular junction.

    2. As ionotropic receptors, nAChRs are directly linked to ion channels and do not use second messengers
