Video animation: mechanism of ionotropic receptors or ligand-gated ion channels (LGICs)

In pharmacology, receptors can be divided into 4 general groups: 1. Ion channels: Ligand gatedace Voltage gated Second messenger regulated 2. G protein coupled receptors 3. Receptor tyrosine kinase 4. Intracellular hormone receptors: likeĀ  the glucocorticoid receptor The video animation below shows the activation of a ionotropic receptor or ligand-gated ion channel (LGIC): An excerpt […]
