 Synonyms & Historicals
Ligand-Gated Ion Channels .
Ligand-Gated Channels .
Channels, Ligand-Gated .
Ion Channels, Ligand-Gated .
Ligand Gated Channels .
Ligand Gated Ion Channels .
A subclass of ion channels that open or close in response to the binding of specific LIGANDS. .
Ion Channel Gating .
Gatings, Ion Channel .
Ion Channel Gatings .
Gating, Ion Channel .
The opening and closing of ion channels due to a stimulus. The stimulus can be a change in membrane potential (voltage-gated), drugs or chemical transmitters (ligand-gated), or a mechanical deformation. Gating is thought to involve conformational changes of the ion channel which alters selective permeability. .
Cysteine Loop Ligand-Gated Ion Channel Receptors .
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 .
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. .
