Cloning and expression of a putative ligand gated ion channel from Nostoc punctiforme

Ligand gated ion channels (LGICs) are a superfamily of transmembrane proteins that mediate synaptic signaling in eukaryotic nervous systems. Sequence profile searches have demonstrated the existence of homologous LGICs in several prokaryotic species, which share general structural and mechanistic pr...
