Nonspecific binding determination, incubation conditions, buffers, temperature). We also list tissue/cell sources of muscarinic receptors suitable for radioligand binding studies and describe procedures of cell and tissue preparation for radioligand binding experiments. We also describe several techniques of receptor-bound ligand separation applicable at muscarinic receptors and provide basic information for binding data analysis. Key words Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors, Radioligand binding 1 Historical Background Radioligand binding methods are a cornerstone of receptor pharmacology, taking muscarinic acetylcholine receptors as an example.

Finally, the lipophilic nature of QNB results in its uptake into cells, which causes significantly high levels of nonspecific binding in intact cell studies. Pirenzepine is M1-selective antagonist (Table 1) that is commonly used for selective labeling of M1 receptors in samples with mixture of receptor subtypes. The use of other selective as well as nonselective radiolabeled antagonists has been reported; however, they have in general lower affinity than NMS (Table 1) and thus are less suitable for routine radioligand binding experiments.
