Term Detail
GO term:lipopolysaccharide receptor activity
Synonym: endotoxin receptor activity
Synonym: LPS receptor activity
GO id:GO:0001875
Definition:Combining with a lipopolysaccharide and transmitting the signal across the cell membrane to initiate a change in cell activity. Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) are major components of the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria, making them prime targets for recognition by the immune system.
Number of paths to term: 3
