Arora et al. (2013) investigated, in a cellular system, the effect of prolonged Abeta exposure on nAChR function. The rodent neuroblastoma cell line NG108-15 was transfected with alpha4beta2 nAChRs and treated for three days with 100 nM Abeta. The following acute stimulation with Abeta and nicotine led to receptor activation that caused a perturbation of intracellular calcium homeostasis followed by mitochondrial dysfunction and increased oxidative stress (Arora et al., 2013)
