Neurotransmitter Receptors (Neurotransmitter Receptor) Summary

Description: Cell surface receptors that bind signalling molecules released by neurons and convert these signals into intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Neurotransmitter is used here in its most general sense, including not only messengers that act to regulate ion channels, but also those which act on second messenger systems and those which may act at a distance from their release sites. Included are receptors for neuromodulators, neuroregulators, neuromediators, and neurohumors, whether or not located at synapses.

Also Known As: Neurotransmitter Receptor; Receptors, Neurotransmitter; Neuromediator Receptor; Neuromodulator Receptor; Neuroregulator Receptor Show All >>
