Structural model of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) embedded in a dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) bilayer (green) and water molecules (red). Only three subunits (color-coded in red, blue, and yellow) are displayed for clarity. The M2 helices are rendered with electrostatic potential surface to highlight the pore shape (see Liu et al, e19).
