Term Detail
GO term:neurotransmitter receptor activity
GO id:GO:0030594
Definition:Combining with a neurotransmitter and transmitting the signal to initiate a change in cell activity.
CommentsA strict definition of neurotransmitter receptor activity would limit its use to receptor activity at the postsynaptic membrane as part of synaptic transmission, but we recognise that usage is often much broader than this. For the strict use case, please see 'postsynaptic neurotransmitter receptor activity'
Number of paths to term: 2
