Receptors are proteins that bind ligands that modulate the way that protein functions, including interactions 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)
