en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cell_surface_receptor

Cell surface receptors (membrane receptors, transmembrane receptors) are receptors that are embedded in the membranes of cells. They act in cell signaling by receiving (binding to) extracellular molecules. They are specialized integral membrane proteins that allow communication between the cell and the extracellular ...

Type 1: L (ionotropic receptors)– These receptors are typically the targets of fast neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine (nicotinic) and GABA; and, activation of these receptors results in changes in ion movement across a membrane. They have a heteromeric structure in that each subunit consists of the extracellular ...

Ionotropic receptors transduce a chemical signal, in the form of a pulse of neurotransmitters delivered to the outside of the target cell, directly into an electrical signal in the form of change in voltage across the target cell's membrane. The opening and closing of ion channels in the membrane allows the flow of specific types ...

Hundreds of different G-protein-linked receptors have been identified. Well- known examples include the β-adrenergic receptor, the muscarininc type of acetylcholine receptor, metabotropic glutamate receptors, receptors for odorants in the olfactory system, and many types of receptors for peptide hormones. Rhodopsin ...

In this type of signaling, the ligand does not need to cross the plasma membrane. So, many different kinds of molecules (including large, hydrophilic or "water- loving" ones) may act as ligands. A typical cell-surface receptor has three different domains, or protein regions: a extracellular ("outside of cell") ligand- binding ...

Sensory receptors can be classified by the type of stimulus that generates a response in the receptor. Broadly, sensory receptors respond to one of four primary stimuli: Chemicals (chemoreceptors); Temperature (thermoreceptors); Pressure (mechanoreceptors); Light (photoreceptors). This is a a schematic drawing of the ...
