The specific aims of this proposal are: 1) to characterize the alpha6-containing nAChR subtype(s) present in human adrenal chromaffin cells and to investigate the regulation of their expression by nicotine; 2) to study the functional interaction between alpha6beta4 nAChRs and mitochondria; 3) the regulation of this nAChR subtype by mitochondrial ROS.
