Neuregulin 1 (NRG1) is critical for formation of the autonomic nicotinic synapseduring development. However, the functional role of NRG1 in adult autonomic neurons remains unknown. We found NRG1-mediated up-regulation of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor via the ErbB2/ErbB3-PI3K-MAPK signaling in MPG neurons of adult rat. This finding suggests that NRG1 is also required for maintenance of adult autonomic nicotinic synapse.
