Cysteine Loop Ligand-Gated Ion Channel Receptors

A subfamily of ligand-gated ion channel receptors that share a characteristic loop which is formed by a disulfide bond between two CYSTEINE residues. These receptors typically contain five subunits with the cysteine-loop occurring near an N-terminal extracellular domain.
Also Known As:
Cys-Loop Receptor Superfamily; Cys-Loop Receptors; Cys Loop Receptor Superfamily; Cys Loop Receptors; Cysteine Loop Ligand Gated Ion Channel Receptors; Receptor Superfamily, Cys-Loop; Receptors, Cys-Loop; Superfamily, Cys-Loop Receptor
