Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-7, encoded by the CHRNA7 gene, is involved in cognition through interneuron modulation of dopamine and glutamate signaling. CHRNA7 gene is genetically linked to multiple disorders with cognitive deficits. A partial duplication of CHRNA7 (CHRFAM7A) is found in humans. CHRFAM7A gene encodes the CHRNA7-FAM7A fusion protein. Expression of CHRFAM7A has been reported in brain, peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs), and a broad range of epithelial cells (PMID: 21718690; 23553139; 25681457). CHRFAM7A has been associated with many neuropsychiatric disorders (PMID: 25906356; 25701707). This antibody, raised against 241-386 amino acids of human CHRFAM7A protein, recognizes both CHRNA7 and CHRFAM7A.
