Official Full Name
cholinergic receptor, muscarinic 5
The muscarinic acetylcholine receptor M5 is a member of the GPCR family (subfamily, acetylcholine) which mediates various cellular responses, including inhibition of adenylate cyclase, breakdown of phosphoinositides and modulation of potassium channels through the action of G proteins. The rimary transducing effect is PI turnover. The receptor has been reported to be expressed in blood, brain, and ovary. ESTs have been isolated from human testis and placenta libraries.
