Combining statistical data mining methods with structural biomolecular modeling, we present comparative affinity data analyses for a diverse set of NNR ligands binding to a4[beta]32, [alpha]3[beta]4 and [alpha]7 NNR subtypes, in parallel with binding affinity data for two different AChBPs (Aplysia and Lymnaea) and data for an Aplysia-AChBP where an important (-)-face tyrosine has been mutated to tryptophan, a structural feature conserved in the NNR subtypes.
