Green and colleagues (191, 365, 485) report that nAChR assembly proceeds in the endoplasmic reticulum where specific subunits are added sequentially to the receptor complex according to the conformations the complex assumes. In this model, nAChR subunits are synthesized, and initial polypeptide folding favors the rapid recognition and interaction between alpha-beta-gamma subunits to produce trimers that in turn form a structure favorable to the addition of the delta subunit and finally the second alpha subunit.
