The concept that beta2-containing nAChRs are involved in the reinforcing effects of nicotine was supported by the findings that these mice lacked the high-affinity nicotine binding site, exhibited poor nicotine self-administration, and failed to develop behaviors related to reinforcement (378). The demonstration that these mice developed symptoms of the nicotine withdrawal syndrome similar to those observed in wild-type mice led to the conclusion that beta2-containing nAChRs do not contribute to the physical dependence on nicotine (57).
