For nicotine, there are two broad subtypes: neuronal-type and muscle-type. They are further subdivided by their molecular make-up and their genetic similarities. Some are located only in the brain, some in the autonomic ganglia, and others only at the neuromuscular junction, the point at which the somatic nerves terminate on skeletal muscle. In total, nicotinic receptors contain 4 subfamilies comprising 17 subunits. This further sub-specialization allows the nicotinic receptor subtypes to differ in their response to various chemicals at muscle tissues and nervous tissues.
