    Eur J Neurosci 21:2681-91. 2005
    ..This suggests that the trafficking of nAChR subunits is increased as a result of chronic nicotine treatment and nAChRs in all parts of neurons could have functional roles in the formation of nicotine addiction...

    Jukka S Pakkanen
    Division of Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland
    J Neurochem 94:1329-41. 2005
    ..Collectively, our results suggest that methadone engages in complex and potentially pharmacologically significant interactions with nAChRs...

    Jukka S Pakkanen
    Division of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Helsinki, Finland
    Synapse 59:383-93. 2006
    ..Chronic nicotine treatment does not change endocytotic trafficking of nAChRs. Chronic nicotine treatment increased clustering of nAChRs, which could have a role in the release of dopamine (DA) evoked by nicotine...

    Int J Pharm 343:238-46. 2007
    ..The results suggest feasibility of the PNIPAM and PVCL for biotechnological/pharmaceutical applications, as the cell-particle interactions may be modified by size, surface charge, hydrophobicity, steric repulsion and temperature...
