The objective of this study was to determine if α7 nAChR subunits play a role in the motor coordination deficiencies elicited by nAChR agonists and antagonists by comparing the motor function and coordination of wild-type mice to mice lacking the α7 nAChR subunit after exposure to a non-lethal dose of methyllycaconitine (MLA) or anabasine. The results from this study suggest that the α7 nAChR does not play an integral role in the motor coordination of mice.
