no - unfortunately it is not. The simply state the receptor is an arrangement of 5 protein subunits, 2 alpha, one beta, one gamma, one delta. Then they later say delta becomes epsilon. No reference, no definition. I'll look into hemoglobin.

Structural Naming of nAChRs

I'm studying nAChR proteins, such as nAChBP or the torpedo EM nAChR. The structure is quite complex IMO and the jargon can get somewhat taxing. For example, an article I'm reading presently claims that human nAChRs in membrane of nerve cells have an (Alpha)2(Beta,Gamma,Delta) quaternary structure in...
