In studies on SH-SY5Y cells and cultured rat hippocampal neurons, nicotine, acting through alpha7 nAChRs, results in the activation of ERK-1/2 pathways dependent upon calcium and protein kinase A (Dajas-Bailador et al., 2002b). In addition, the alpha7-specific agonist GTS-21 promotes ERK-1/2 phosphorylation, but not that of c-jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) or p38 (Ren et al., 2005).
