Cysteine Loop Ligand-Gated Ion Channel Receptors

Known as: Receptor Superfamily, Cys-Loop, Cys-Loop Receptor Superfamily, Cys-Loop 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… (More)
