Receptors are proteins that bind ligands that modulates the way that protein interacts with other proteins. The three most important classes of receptors are

  • G-protein coupled receptors
  • Ligand-gated ion channels
  • Nuclear receptors

For naming of receptors, please refer to the IUPHAR database

For screening data on GPCR receptors, please see the NIMH Psychoactive Drug Screening Program (PDSP)
