CHRM3 (Cholinergic receptor, muscarinic 3)
Cholinergic receptor, muscarinic 3 (CHRM3) is a G protein coupled receptor that is involved in the control of smooth muscle contraction. In humans, a L1HS transposon insertion has created a novel transcript that is the only CHRM3 transcript to be expressed in placenta. The significance of this new transcript is as of yet is unknown.
