I did a Hydropathy Plot and a Scatchard Analysis for the neuronal acetylcholine receptor. What did I learn about the receptor from these tests? A. There are 6,200 ligand binding sites per cell and each alpha subunit might cross the plasma membrane three times. B. Each receptor molecule has two ligand binding sites and possibly three transmembrane domains C. The affinity for acetylcholine is greater than the affinity of the insulin receptor for insulin, but each receptor has more transmembrane domains than the insulin receptor. D. Each receptor subunit has three alpha-helical segments and the ligand binds with high
