These proteins are responsible for signal detection and translation into other type of signal. Sometimes these proteins are active only in complex with low molecular weight compounds. Very well known member of this protein family id rhodopsin - light detecting protein. Many receptors are transmembrane proteins.

The Function of the Nuclear Receptor Peroxisome Proliferator--activated Receptor Delta in Energy Homeostasis


Focuses on the function of the nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta in energy homeostasis. Establishment of the metabolic function; Features of a nuclear hormone rec...

Retinoic acid as cause of cell proliferation or cell growth inhibition depending on activation of one of two different nuclear


Retinoic acid can combine with the nuclear retinoic acid receptor (RAR), leading to cell growth inhibition, as in certain tumors. Retinoic acid can also bind to the orphan nuclear receptor peroxi...

Central Nervous System Receptor Activities of Some Malaysian Plant Species


In this investigation, 185 plant samples representing more than 30 plant families collected from the Malaysian forests were assessed for their ability to inhibit specific radioligand binding to 5...

Nuclear receptors of the enteric tract: guarding the frontier


In addition to its classical role in mineral homeostasis, the vitamin D receptor has been implicated in diverse physiologic and pathophysiologic processes including immunoregulation and cancer. I...
