Electrophysiology and Ca_imaging normalized data

The file contains the normalized electrophysiological (TEVC (two-electrode voltage clamp)) and calcium imaging (Ca-img) data for oocyte and Neuro2a cells responses, respectively. WT human α7 nAChR (nicotinic acetylcholine receptor) and mouse muscle nAChR were expressed in oocytes and Neuro2a cells. Besides, their mutants (at positions 117-119, 184, 185, 187 and 189 in α7 nAChR and at positions 153 and 190 in muscle nAChR) were heterologously expressed as well and their responses were estimated accordingly. Responses to different concentrations of acetylcholine (Ach) and epibatidine (Epi) were measured. For calcium imaging studies two calcium sensors (genetically encoded Case12 and low-molecular weight Fluo-4) were used. Calcium imaging analysis was carried out in the presence of a positive allosteric modulator PNU120596.
