Compound C does not bind to the receptor as effectively as acetylcholine . Explain briefly why this might be the case. (Two or three sentences)(again if the post does not show right, two of the CH3 should be above and below the N^+ with a line directly above and below the N^+ then two lines || above the C with the O above that.)

  1. You forgot the instruction in 'two or three sentences'.
    This is an OU S104 assignment question and posting it is considered to be cheating. Your post will be forwarded to the course team.
