Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Mecamylamine (a non-specific antagonist of nAChRs) and alpha-bungarotoxin (a specific antagonist of the nAChRalpha7) completely inhibited nicotine-mediated protection against arachidonic acid-induced alterations of BDNF and FGF-2.

Furthermore, arachidonic acid induced a long-lasting (>/=3 h) facilitation of hippocampal CA1 synaptic transmission in slices, and the effect was blocked by nicotinic ACh receptor antagonists, alpha-bungarotoxin and mecamylamine.
