Example text

11). These molecular stimuli, which bind specifically to receptors, are called ligands. Receptors are also located on the membranes of cell organelles; less is known about these receptors, but they appear to be glycoproteins necessary for correctly positioning newly synthesized cellular proteins. Although most receptor proteins are probably integral membrane proteins, some may be peripheral. In addition, receptor proteins can vary widely in their composition and mechanism of action. Although the composition and mechanism of action of many receptors have not yet been determined, at least three distinct types of receptors are known to exist: ●● ●● ●● those that bind the ligand stimulus and convert it into an internal signal that alters behavior of the affected cell those that function as ion channels those that internalize their stimulus intact Examples of these three types of receptors follow.

Examples of oxidoreductases are the enzymes found in the electron transport chain located on the inner membrane of the mitochondria. Other examples are the cytochrome P450 enzymes located on the ER of liver cells. Transferases are enzymes that catalyze reactions not involving oxidation and reduction in which a functional group is transferred from one substrate to another. Included in this group of enzymes are transketolase, transaldolase, transmethylase, and the transaminases. The transaminases (α-amino transferases), which figure so prominently in protein metabolism, are located primarily in the mitochondrial matrix.

Such is the case when the neurotransmitter acetylcholine is the stimulus. The receptor for acetylcholine appears to function as an ion channel in response to voltage change. Stimulation by acetylcholine signals the channels to open, allowing sodium (Na) ions to pass through an otherwise impermeable membrane [17]. 11. Receptors that perform in such a manner exist for a variety of biologically active molecules, including the hormones insulin and triiodothyronine. Low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) are taken up by certain cells in much the same fashion (see Chapter 5), except that their receptors, rather than being mobile, are already clustered in coated pits.
